Thanks for the help.
As phpBB's hashing algorithm is stronger then plain MD5, and there is a policy to not help users lighten the security of the system. Therefore you won't find a guide on this site on how to switch the core hashing algorithm from phpass to md5.
You however could write a custom authentication plugin (there is info on this on the wiki)
that allows phpBB to authenticate against the other database, or depending on the other software it might be easier to have that fallback to phpBB's authentication system.
