Terminal Server slow to login

We have a Windows 2000 domain controller, P3 1.1Ghz, 1Gb RAM which is used for file/print as well as terminal services.  Frequently users experience very slow login times when trying to access this server via Terminal Services (from XP Pro machines).  I have run perfmon on this server and there is no problem with processor, memory or disk utilization, but I have noticed that if I am logged in to the server, when other users try to login, my session will freeze until theirs logs in.  Sometimes this can take up to 5 minutes.  I cant seem to find what might be causing the server to freeze like this, Im tearing out my hair, and my users have organised a witch-hunt :)  Has anyone else experienced this problem, or can offer somewhere else I can look that might be causing these issues?

We had the same problem.

maybe you have a user profile problem, where are the user profoles stored? on this server or on another one? Usualy a long logon time is caused by user profile that take very long time to load.

there are no roaming profiles, the local profiles are stored locally, not on another machine
