Is this windows 2000 or 2003?

If it is 2003 you need to make sure that the users are added to the remote desktop users group on the terminal server.

Let me know if this helps.

Just a little more clarification:

The admin group is a member of this group by default on a 2003 server.  Any other users (or groups) connecting to the machine need to be added to this local terminal server group manually.

SamuraiCrow is correct, but you also need to make sure TS is running in Application Mode (not Remote Administration mode) for a non-administrator to log in.

That is changed in Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, Windows Setup.  Every time you save you are prompted for the TS mode.

You should also be aware that TS can't be run on a Domain Controller - with SBS 2k3 you need to run a seperate member server for TS. This is by design (for security reasons) according to Microsoft, and just coincidentally requires you to purchase another server license.
