Question Why prompt for changing password?


I used red hat linux advanced server and KDE interface. I login as root and changed the password of a user. It prompts the user to changing password every time when he login. And, he cannot login with the new password that I set for him. I re-set password for other users and no this problem. How can I fix it?
