I am using sbs 2003 on a small network of 4 client computers.  each user has their own profile added to active directory.

is their a way to change the frequency of password expiration for the users or is it just a single default time period?

Hello,

Open active directory & computers - users- select user & then right click - properties - account - accounts options - & then select only this option user must change password at next log on.    

Restart client computer & then check with change password. You can change password any time.
Press ALT + CTRL + DEL & you can see change password.
