If you're using Windows XP Pro, click Start, Run and enter LUSRMGR.MSC Open the Users folder and double click the account in question. On the General tab, check User cannot change password.

You can also apply this to all users by clicking Start, Run and entering GPEDIT.MSC (XP Pro Only) Go to:

User Configuration, Administrative Templates, System, Ctrl+Alt+Del Options. Enable the policy to Remove Change Password.

For XP Home, no, you can't restrict this, to my knowledge.
