Required change interval in password expiration settings

We are doing password expiration for the first time for 6.5.3 Other than filling out the policy for security -- the section called Password Expiration Settings -- for all our /=O, are there any other places/sections that need to be completed? We would like the password change prompt to happen in the next two weeks. So what do we put in for "required change interval?"
That's the only place you need it. If you want it to change in the next two weeks, you'd put 14 days in there. However, you would have to change it to a more reasonable period (i.e., 90 days, or whatever your current policy is) almost immediately. In essence, to get the "soon" change, you are modifying that field twice. Some people might get prompted to change it twice, as well, because of the quick timeframe.
