how can i import an existing site's user table, where password not encrypted?

I have an existing site, which is okay, but due to cms feature I want to convert existing php site to word-press. My problem is that how can i keep alive existing users data like user-id and password in word-press user table ?? the passwords are not in wp format, but I want the existing users also remain there.
