Password change in non-trusted domains

I have two seperate (not trusted) domains.  A couple of users from one domain require access to resources in the other domain.  For political and security reasons the domain structure is not to be altered.  I have created accounts on the second domain for the users and set the account so they "must change passwork on first login".  When they go to connect to the second domain, a dialog box tells them they must change their password, but does not provide any way to do this.

The second domain can be seen in Network Neighbourhood.  If they try <CTRL. <ALT> <DEL> then "change password" then enter their username, domain name and passwords, a dialog appears saying it cannot find the domain required.

If I set the users password not to expire on the second domain, they can logon OK - but this is not desireable.

Any clues ????

I spent couple of hours to play with password changing in untrusted domain environment and don't find any reason why it shouldn't work. Of course, unless the both domains are on the same subnet, you have to specify remote domain's PDC in your LMHOSTS file. The entry should be is such format:

<IP address of remote PDC> <name of remote PDC> #PRE #DOM:<remote domain name>

After that reboot your computer or type from command prompt
   nbtstat -R
and change the password (<CTRL> <ALT> <DEL> and so on).

If it won't help I'll need then closer look on your system, but I hope that all will be OK.
