If the client only access the samba services, or if they don't mind
having to manually sync their unix password and samba/windows password,
why not turn samba into a PDC ? This will allow them to change their
samba password from NT by pressing CTRL-ALT-DEL and choosing "Change

(Running samba 2.0.7 as a PDC for about 35 NT clients and 50 users)
