In a windows SBS 2003 server and Windows XP Pro environment
I have just discovered that network users can  not lofgin into other users computers.  One of our PCs crashed and now I need to let another user log into an idle PC.  When I try to log them in, I get a message - The local policy of the computer will not allow you to login interactively.  HELP
Where is this controlled?  how do I change it so people can log into other peoples PCs.

All users should be able to login to other domain PCs, not servers, out of the box.  If the user has been restricted to their own PC then it will be done from the properties of their user account in active directory users and computers.

Thanks, but I see no place in Active directory where I can control that.  Do you mean Active Directory on the client computer or the server???

From within Active Directory Users & Computers, on the server, and choose the user account in question.  

Right-click the user and choose properties.
Choose the account tab, then select the logon to button.

That is where the users can be mapped to/from certain computers.
