For the record, our sites should never actually store the password on the
DB side.  You should store an encryption of the password for moderate
security sake.  MD5 is a simple hash but crackable and PHP has all sorts of
"salted" encryption methods for obscuring the user passwords stored in a DB.

As for your question about storing some form of Remember Me? checkbox,
you'll need a persistent cookie to store some flag that the user is logged
