The only way I can think of doing this is removing the keyboard from the w2k server. Then you can just use terminal services, if it's installed on the server, to log in.

You can also specify how many connections are allowed, then you can just allow one connection at a time.

Sounds like you have too many people who shouldn't have admin priviledges with access to the admin account. If you're in charge, fix that first.

I would set the other people up in the office with power user rights and so they will not see that they are being blocked out. If they try to log in to the server though they will be disabled from logging on. Terminal services is a good idea but it allows multiple sessions so you would still have to mind what the other people are doing. If you used the freeware VNC (http://www.uk.research.att.com/vnc) than you can see a live session of the desktop all the time. This would allow you to see if anyone was on that server live all day. The file is small and is password protected. If someone is an administrator than they do have the ability to log on the server, so being able to monitor it all the time would be a good solution. I hope!
Good Luck my friend
