you can select the "password never expires" checkbox under the "account" tabe in AD. This will override the GPO if one is indeed set.

Domain or workgroup?
Try Start->Run->DSA.MSC
This is your AD Users and Computers applet.
Right click the domain and search for the user's account.
Double-click it and under the Account tab, you can set it to password never expires.

This is a bad idea. You should never bow to users wishes when it comes to security. Set the password change policy to be as tough as you think is right for your data and don't flinch from it. Security policy is all about managing the users and their expectations but remembering what the fundamental need is - data protection (and your butt!). You should also ensure that the users can't re-use the last 'x' passwords where x > 5!
