This is very simple, basically policies are in place that ensure that the password is of a certain minimum length and complexity (must be alphanumeric, non-dictionary word, special characters etc etc).

I've not used 2003 (will actually be hardening it as a bastion host for the first time this evening) but in Win2k you would go to local security policy, and look under Account Policies | Password Policies.
That will let you set the password requirements.
