Unless you are using a custom encryption algorithm, it is pretty much imposible to decrypt anything encrypted with the standard unix crypt() function. What I suggest doing is to go ahead and encrypt the password. When a user loses his/her password, you can reset it to a temporary random string and send it to the user via email. Once the user is logged in, they may change it to whatever they want.
