problem with users trying to change passwords

hi, I'm having a small problem with my users. When they type passwd the normal prompt comes up but when they enter their password it says incorrect and we have tried multiple number of times so we know they were correct passes.

Anyone have any ideas of why that would not be working?
Could it be wrong permissions on /usr/bin/passwd?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
