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?

I made all the changes listed in 297121 but I only get a HTTP Error 403 - Forbidden. The front end server is win2k sp4. Not sure what I doing wrong.

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?
