OK, for those who may have found this on a search I found that the
easiest way to do this was to use the NT4 User Manager tool to set the
flag that forces the user to change password at the next login.

Just search for SRVTOOLS.EXE, download them and execute the file in the
directory in which you want them to be installed.
