Is there a way to reduce the number of times that a password can be change before a user can start using old passwords other than the default 24 times?  I have just change the password policies and each user will be require to change his/her password every sixty days.  However I want them to be able to use old passwords after at least 6 times and not 24 as it is set in Windows Server 2003 defaults.

Yes; it's there at the password policies as well. "Enforce password history" (or similar, not using an English version). Set it to "6", and you should be fine.
