Stop users using same password twice

Windows 2000 SP4
Active Directory
Server is dc

In ActiveDir > Users > User > Account ,   I have unchecked "Password never expires" so after 14 or 30 days (I cant remember), and so the user is prompted to change their password after that time period.

Is it possible to stop the user entering the same password each time they have to change it?

Yep, Load up the Default Domain Policy and go to:

Computer Configuration, Windows Settings, Security Settings, Account Policies, Password Policy.

To ensure they take a different password you need to enable the Enforce Password History policy.

The time between password changes is also set here.
