[Samba] Password Aging Policies - SAMBA

I am new to SAMBA. I am using it with LINUX and I love it! Nice change from you know who.

I am sorry if this is a lame question, but I am setting up a Primary Domain Controller and a Backup Domain Controller. All the clients are Windows 2K or XP. I need the clients to reset their passwords every 30 days. I am having a hard time locating a procedure to set this feature. LINUX has 'chage' but that does not seem to apply to SAMBA.

Does anyone know how I can set up a policy for my SAMBA clients. to force them to change their passwords? I hope so, because I really want to use LINUX/SAMBA for my domain controllers, and this is my last hurdle.

Thanks in advance,
