exchange 2007 OWA password reset autofill domain

Is there any way to get the 'password reset' page of IIS/OWA to reference the FORMS based authentication similar to what OWA itself can use?

We have a few remote users who only access email and need to reset their passwords.  These users also aren't very tech friendly and telling them to put 'domain\username' doesn't work so well.  Thus, we are trying to get the password reset page in OWA/IIS to not require this.

I have read some scripting that is listed for 2003 as well as a very basic 'modify the logon.asp' link from Microsoft (the MS article says it is for 2007, yet from my understanding all pages in 2007 are aspx pages not asp...).

So, basically the question is how can I get the domain to be automatically applied during the password reset.  I don't need a selection list for the user nor do I even need it to be visible to the user.

I have programmed so I understand the basics but I am not a programmer - so if I need to modify an asp(x) file please be specific with what portion of it I need to change and the basic syntax of the code.

C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\ClientAccess\Owa\forms\premium

 is the location

changepassword.aspx

in the file (I believe is the code needed to be modified):

<td><%=LocalizedStrings.GetHtmlEncoded(Strings.IDs.ChangePasswordUserDomain) %></td>

From Microsoft:
When Basic authentication or forms-based authentication is used with Outlook Web App, the Change Password feature may not work correctly when a user uses a password that includes extended ASCII or Unicode characters. This happens because passwords that use extended ASCII or Unicode characters aren't transmitted correctly between IIS and some Web browsers. We recommend that Outlook Web App users use only ASCII characters if they'll be using the Change Password feature in Outlook Web App.

the end of the snippet you posted from Microsoft indicates using the 'Change Password feature in Outlook Web App.' - is there a way to make this the page that comes up when you use the 'user must change password at next logon' rather then the IIS 6.0 app?  As that app appears to use the already verified credentials (domain\username field is prefilled and greyed out) rather then requiring you to enter them again.
