You can do something like

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. SELECT *
  2. FROM users
  3. WHERE 
  4. BINARY_CHECKSUM(username) = BINARY_CHECKSUM('username') AND 
  5. BINARY_CHECKSUM([passwd) = BINARY_CHECKSUM('password')
You can leave the " username = 'username' and passwd = 'password' " in the where clause to cover the *extremely* unlikely event that two different usernames and passwords (used in the same record) return the same checksum...
