We are running Samba as PDC on our network and, have this
tiny little problem, non of our user can change their logon-

Could someone please tell me how? (The MANPAGE could'nt)

Except from this our Samba server is the best thing ever happened
to our network.......

Best regards

I had a very similar problem 
I did the changes in these parameters with some help from ntdom 
 and it helped me may be you can try out

security = user
    encrypt passwords = yes
    passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
    passwd chat = *New*UNIX*password* %n\n *Retype*new*UNIX*password* %n\n *passwd:*all*authentication*tokens*updated*successfully*
    smb passwd file = /etc/smbpasswd
    unix password sync = yes
