You need to give more information about the server and the clients for a
better informaed answer.

But I can confirm that, if the server is Windows XP, then a maximum of one
user at a time can connect through Remote Desktop. Two will not work
simultaneously.

it sounds like you 2000 server is setup this way, which is what they call
remote administration mode:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;300847

this mode has a limit of 2 simultaneous connections.

You need to go to application mode. Take a look at these articles and they
should help you out.
