Not with Windows 2003 I'm afraid.

If you were to upgrade your domain to 2008  (including the shift to 2008 Native Mode) you could use Fine Grained Password Policies. Without 2008 you're stuck with one password policy per domain, or third party software to look after it for you (there's nothing native).

In windows server 2003  domain level. Only one Password policy for a single domain. In windows 2008 , you have fine-grained   password policy you can apply.
