This can be done with Samba-3. You can set the password policy using:

1. Unix command line too is: pdbedit
	- see man page for pdbedit
2. Microsoft SrvTools.exe
	- can be installed on NT4 Workstation, Windows 200x / XP
	- use the Domain User Manager
3. Microsoft NEXUS.EXE
	- use this for domain management from Win 9x/Me
	- use the Domain User Manager
