Windows 2000 server user account lock out

I have a policy in place on a Windows 2000 server environment in mixed mode.  I have some clients on windows 95 and windows 98 but the majority are on Windows 2000 and XP.  The policy says passwords will expire in 90 days.  What happens if the user doesn't change their password after the expiration date?  Does their account get locked out?

How will the windows 95 and windows 98 clients react?

Thanks in advance for your help.  :)

The reference to the cancel button is for Win95/98.

 So matter what with the WinNT/2k/XP they will have to change their passwords or they can't get on.  I understand.

LucF,
one last question Win95/98 will have the chance to change their password on that day only, unless I have them change it now right???

thanks

Yep, win95/98 users won't get the "your password will..." message. So they'll just get the message on that day.
