You do realize that ANY user logging in on a regular basis with administrative privilages is bad - including yourself.  

How you create "standard" users depends on how you have the server setup.  If you have it as a domain controller,  then you create the users in Active Directory Users and Computers.  And if you are NOT using a domain, then you go to Computer Management and the Users and Groups section.

Remember, by default users are not members of the "Administrators" or "Domain Admins" group.  There usually isn't a very good reason for them to be members of the server administrators groups, either.  If you have software that requires it, you can configure certain users to be Administrators of their own desktop computers (Win2k/WinXP/Vista).

The answer to the original question is here http://www.visualwin.com/New-User/

How are people using the server, are they just logging on to it locally or are they accessing it remotely. I assume you do not have a domain and you have no user accounts.

I am a bit worried abot this is your question leads me to thing that there is a lot of background reading and reaseach that you need to do.

The following may be of help
