Change password from windows xp to samba

Dear All,

I have installed samba in my fedora core 2 and i am able to see the shared folder from my Fedora box. I want to open this server to all my users who are using Windows XP as their OS. I want let them change their password for their user ids when they are accessing to samba first time. That means i want my users to maintain their password.

Kindly help me in this issue.

Thanks in advance,
