Hey experts,

    I have a client that has a local server at his company (i.e. it's not hosted somewhere); he logs on it as an admin on a domain that he created; then I logged into it using these same admin credentials; I want to see the list of users that is currently logged in to the domain or to the server (since it's the same thing for this server - since there's only this domain); any idea how? (since I can't use the task manager)

Right click on "My Computer" , click on "Manage". Under "SHared Folders", you will see shares, user sesssions, and open files.

Can you explain to me briefly how it would differ when using a windows 2000 server between logging in on the computer itself, and logging into a domain?

To sum it up, when you log into your network domain, you have access, depending on user rights you assign in AD, to networking features that would normally not be available to you just logging onto the computer. Some of these could be, file and directory sharing, internet access, exchange access etc. Keep in mind, when you start logging them into the domain, some of their settings and prefs will change because they are being looked at as different individuals.
