Well, actually, I haven't tried anything, since I have no idea what to try.  
On our Novell system, when the password expires, a window pops up asking the 
user to change the password.  The user can also go into the Novell client and 
change his password.  I can't find anything like that.  Yes, I have looked 
through the docs, I've spent hours Googling the issue to no avail.

Let me make it simple for someone to answer.  When a normal non-computer 
literate user calls and asks how he changes his password, what would you tell 
him?  Please keep in mind that answers like RTFM are not good for job
