    It will be for all users in your domain. You could setup another domain and enforce a different password policy, but is additional cost or consider upgrading to Windows 2008 server that allows the granularity through the use of PSOs.

    You can use Group Policy to enforce different logons for users who log on using a local computer user account.

    Not sure whether you are considering upgrading in the future.

      Create another OU in AD, link a new GPO which has strong passwords configured to the OU you just created, move the users you wish to use strong passwords into the new OU.
      This is pure GPO - not SBS!!
      For SBS, all Users are created under "My Business\SBS Users" OU. Create your Strong Password OU UNDER the SBS Users OU to make sure they get all the other default SBS policies.

        Please note that password policies can only work if linked at the Domain level.
        They wont work at the OU level.
        If you want to exclude certain users just bang them in a group and use security filtering in the GPO so It only includes users you want to have the policy applied to.
