"Windows XP" "The local policy of this system does not permit you to logon interactively"

Desktop PC : HP d220 MT
Server   Windows 2003 Server with Active Domain setup.

On a Windows XP pc, when logging in as an Active Domain User, not administrator, I get
"The local policy of this system does not permit you to logon interactively"   Login fails.  A network Domain Admin account can login successfully, but not a non admin user.

You will need to enable log on locally to this computer from the AD and add the user account
Farhan KaziSystems EngineerCommented:
1. Logon to machine with Admin account
2. Click Start, click Run, type secpol.msc, and then click OK
3. Expand Local Policies, and then click User Rights Assignment
4. In the right pane, double-click "Log on Locally"
4. Add the account to the list
6. Click OK.
7. Close the Local Security Settings snap-in.

Hope this helps!
also, add this particular USER in remote desktop users group in AD
