If its advanced server then try the following:

Go into the active directory users and groups. Right click the desired user and go into the properties. Then select account. Following that hit the 'Log on to' button. There you can specify what computers that user can log on to.

SEE in win98 OS ,any body can logon with or without password authentication .since all users have roaming profile so they can log on from any computer .set the users as mandatory profile.may be this can not solve ur problem its better to assign computer policy in active directory users and group.SELECT COMPUTER U WANT TO APPLY AND ASSIGN PERMISSIONS.

OR ELSE

U DOWNLOAD A THIRD PARTY TOOL FOR WIN 98 ACCESS DENIED.IN THIS U CAN MAKE A USER IN EACH COMPUTER MANUALY IN THIS SOFTWARE THERE IS NO RELATION WITH UR SERVER THIS WILL NOT ALLOW TO BOOT TO WIN98 WITH OUT AUTHENTICATING LOCALY.

Using windows 2000 server with any client there is now ay to stop a user logging on more than once; unless you're very good at scripting.

So..the only way is as smarturtle suggested....

however, this allows users to log onto one machine only..and negates the use of a active directory domain...it's something microsoft will sort out in sp1 for windows 2003 server.

It does not matter if it is Windows 2000 Server, Advanced Server or Datacentre.

You could just restrict the user to being able to logon to one machine which you name.
Go into AD users and computers, select the user, click on the accounts tab, click on the Logon To... button and enter the machine(s) that you want them to be able to logon to.
The only downside of this is that if you limit the user to a named machine and it is broken, they are stuffed until you allow them to logon to another.
