Are you logging onto the Mint 9 machine with a local account, then connecting to shared resources on the server? Or does Mint 9 support Active Directory integration and you're actually logging directly onto the domain?

I have my EEE PC (with Mint 9) hooked up to a Windows 2000 server at 
work. The server is set to force the user to change their password every 
30 days and the new password mustn't be the same as any of the previous 
dozen or so passwords.

When the password is due to change my Mint 9 can't log in to the 
network. I have to end up going to a Windows machine, changing my 
password then go back to my Mint9 machine.

Is there a way I can do the password change within Mint 9?

Any advice is much appreciated.
