If you are just having problems logging into a server then you can use a Win2k Pro or WinXP Pro machine to access the machine. If the error message is happening on a workstation then you may have more problems. Essentially interactive logons are logons where a keyboard is used to access the machine with a local/domain account. In an AD environment you may have to do an AD restore. This sounds like a problem with the default domain GP setup.

I was haunted by this error when I was using an ICA client to access a Win 2K Terminal server running Citrix Metaframe. Is this the case here? A little more info on the scenario would be helpful. However if it is simply on a server you can try checking the local policy setting to see if it allows local logons:

On Windows 2000:

1. Start >Programs > Administrative Tools > Domain Controller Security Policy >Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > User Rights Assignment > log on locally.

2. Please refer to Microsoft TechNet Article Q247989 for additional information

If you can log into another server, or install the Win2k admin pack from the cd, then you can change the default domain controller policy to allow certain users to login locally (interactively). If you have policies prohibitting it at the OU level, you might want to change them too, as they wqill take precedence over the domain policies.
