On a RHEL4, with Samba 3.0.10, I have the following password options 
below.  I just tested and with a WinXP Pro client, I did the 
ctrl-alt-delete and changed my password.  Once I did that, I ssh'ed into 
the box and it used my new password.

encrypt passwords = yes

null passwords = yes

obey pam restrictions = yes

passwd chat = *New*UNIX*password* %n\n*ReType*new*UNIX*password*%n\n 

passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u

unix password sync = Yes
