Would like to setup a computer on a Win 2K Server domain network, that only a certain user can log on to the network at that computer. All other users would be denied access.

I can't figure out how to limit this usage.

In AD Users & Computers you can specify who can log on to a certain computer. Thats the only way of doing it that I know of.

If you have a global group (apart from Everyone) that the user you want to give access is excluded from, deny access to that group to logon to it (if theres an option for that!)

You can do this through either local security policy or group policy if you put the computer in its own OU. Grant the USER and DOMAIN ADMIN, ADMINISTRATORS "LOG ON LOCALLY" permissions and remove everyone else.
