Windows XP users cannot change domain user password via ctrl-alt-del

I am using windows server 2003/2008.  I have windows xp users that cannot change passwords via CTRL-ALT-DEL.  Even under a my "administrator" id when I press CTRL-ALT-DEL, the change password is greyed out.

Which setting to I change to allow users to change their password?

Thanks

Of into the user -> Account tabs -> Uncheck "User cannot change password"

tmassa99 / billyangers, this worked perfectly.  I did have to move users from the "container" users to a new OU and it worked perfectly.  Thanks!!!
