Description

Each detected Operating system shows an option "Root password hash" for setting the algorithm used to calculate the root password. However, it seems to default to SHA256. I'd like to have it default to another value as when new Operating systems are detected in the future (RHEL 7.3) I'd prefer it to default to a stronger hash.

This should be implemented under Administration->Settings somewhere
