There is more than one way to solve this problem. You can either set the old password hash for a single user or you can run the entire system using the old password hash table. Regardless here is the page that you want to read on how to do it. If you want to make the entire data base run using the old password hash you will need to edit the /pkg/rc/rc_mysql file to add the option into the startup section. However just changing the password hash for a single user is a better option.
All of the various options are done from the command line after running the 'mysql' command as the root user.
If you are afraid that you might make a mistake. The chances are high that you will never learn anything.
