Apart from the GPO you can also specify in the individual user accounts in ADUC that "Users Cannot Change Their Password."

Check that on the users you ar ehaving problems with.

From an XP client...

Click Start->Run->MMC
File - > Add/Remove Snap in
Add
Resultant Set of Policy
Follow the wizard to completion.
Ok back to the console
Now check
Expand the workstation, Computer Config
Windows Settings/Security Settings
Account Policy/Password Policy
Check through these and make sure nothing is awry
Do the same for Account Lockout Policy...

Try adding in Domain Users into the Administrator Group.

Right-Click on My Computer and select Manage.
From there go to System Tools | Local Users and Groups | Groups
Double Click on Administrators and click on Add
Select the user that owns that PC or other group (I use Domain Users)

MARKISL..."Try adding in Domain Users into the Administrator Group"

The local admin group does not exist in win98, but it's a great security risk to do that.
