How do I turn off Enforce password history

My boss was forced to change the Admin password on a SBS 2008 server to log in.  Now he wants it back to the same one he had before.  How do I go about doing this?

Thanks, that kicked me onto the right track.  To get to it, it's in the Group Policy Management Editor under: Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Account Policies > Password Policy.
