Default Users foced to change password

I have 3 computers running Windows XP on a domain with a single Windows 2000 DC

They users are being forced to change there password every 30 days, i have change the setting in group policy aswell as the local policy on each computer.

i want to allow users to change password but they password should not expire.

When you add a user you click "Password Never Expires" it shouldn't conflict.

Go to the user properties and check the box 'password never expires'. It will over write the group policy and they won't be forced to change their passwords.
