Very good point, store the randomly generated salt in a user record next to their salted hashed
password.  Definitely adds more time to resolving passwords when they have to try hashing
with salts.  Makes static lookup tables(like rainbow) much harder to use.

+1 and another +1 if you salt that hash.

However using a modern GPU it's possible to check about 100 MD5 million hashes a  second so
it's becoming less and less secure.
