How can I have Win2000 Terminal Services allow no more than one session from a single device?

Is there a way to configure Windows 2000 Terminal Services to only allow a single session from a given Windows 2000 Professional computer?  To manage resource loading, I need to ensure that a user on a given machine cannot create multiple sessions on the Terminal Services server  

(I know that I can limit the maximum number of connections through the Network Adapter tab of the RDP-Tcp Properties page.  However, I don’t want to do this because it could inhibit legitimate users from logging in.)

Thank you.
