    We are running on Novell. I set up a Win2K machine for the first time & I set up the password to be the same as their Novell password which does not expire. But every so often the user get s asked to change their windows password. It's hard enough for users to remember a password they had for years without having to change this one every few weeks. Is there a way to turn that feature off.

    Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Users and Passwords -> advanced tab -> Advanced button under Advanced User Management -> click on Users under the local tree -> double click users name, select 'password never expires'. Click OK, then close the window.
