Non-admin access to a Domain Controller

Is there a way to have a non-admin user log on to a Windows 2000 domain controller and only to that domain controller? We have a user that needs access to some of the database apps installed on that server that are not accessible via SQL's Enterprise Manager, but the server is a domain controller.

As a second consideration:

I am aware that in theory, the user would be able to see the Active Directory Users and Computers applets as well as all the other ones, but would he have access to make modifications, if he were allowed in but without admin rights?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

You need to change the Domain Controller Security Policy to allow that user to logon.  It wouldn't give them admin rights, but would give them the right to logon.
