[K12OSN] Password strength checking with FC3

I'm try to workout if Fedora Core 3 uses the pam_cracklib module when users change their passwords 
from a Windows client via Samba3.

I have used David & Matts excellent installer script and everything is working but I'm a little 
worried staff will use weak passwords when they have the opportunity to change them.

I've looked the the files in /etc/pam.d but I'm not sure what I'm looking for.

Could anyone point me in the right direction (hopefully not the door *grin*), what I'd like to 
enforce is a min length of 8 and a mixture of upper & lower case.
