In a Windows 2000 or 2003 domain, this is contained in the GPO setting Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options\Interactive Logon: Prompt user to change password before expiration.

The setting should be the number of days before the password expires in which you want the user to be warned.

In the event the policy is not set by a GPO in the domain, it may be found on the local system's GPO.

Another option is to change the password expiry warning registry key.

Here is a link for information on this process.
