For Win2kPro clarification.
CTRL-ALT-DEL will bring up a dialog box with 6 buttons.
Lock, Logoff, Shutdown, Change Password, Task Manager, and Cancel.
My users can currently change their password with this method, and all of their related Samba shares (winbind supported) are updated accordingly.

Winbind is used so that Linux servers and workstations can use Win2K
(or WinNT I suppose - though I work with 2000) can use a Win2K domain
controller as the authentication server. This allows seamless
integration of Linux into a Win2K domain.
As to your problem, I am unaware of the ability to change a password on
a Win2K workstation (Professional I would assume) by pressing
CTRL+ALT+DEL. Could you please give more information such as
1. Are you in a Win2K domain.
2. Are you using Win2K Pro on your workstation.
3. What version of Samba/Winbind you are using.
4. Are you using a Linux workstation.
Please forward that information and I will try to help you out as best
as I can.
