How to allow Domain User to use one of 2 Terminal Service "Licences"

How can I let one user of our domain enter onto a Windows 2000 machine and access applications, etc. I gave him Admin. priveleges, etc but no luck. When he logs on via Terminal onto the workstation, it allows him in, but then does not recognize his user as valid when accessing certain "private" shared resources, it asks him for a user and password. When he uses a generic password, it lets him in. This is the only glitch. I would like him to enter into the domain and then work that way. What am I missing or doing wrong?

Let me guess: You have installed terminal services and that server is running in remote admin mode, right? So only two users are allowed to login simultaneaously from remote. That's what I did once.
Default settings are now: accept connections only from users of the local admin group. I configured the terminal server to accept connections from members of the group "domain users" too and gave them user access and everything works.
