If you are running exchange you can change the password through Outlook Web Access.

We use Exchange 2003 but these remote clients don't have an email account. Will OWA still work?

Sounds like you dont have permission. Try checking the permissions on the iisadmpwd folder.
You said front end server is win2k sp4, do you have backend servers aswell? If so what are they?
