I get the feeling that you have users defined on the client machine, is 
that correct?  If so, I don't believe there is any way that the windows 
machines at least, provide you to hook into the password change 
mechanism to signal something else.  This is one of the many advantages 
to using domains, you don't have any local password to sync.  I would 
suggest looking into domains if you aren't running one.
