I have a server that won't allow remote desktop for anyone but Administrators to the machine? Is that normal? Is there a way to make exceptions without giving administrative access to the user?

By default Administrators have access to remote desktop to any machine. To add a user on the sever you want the user to access,
Right click on my computer, go to Properties, Remote Tab, and click on Select Remote Users, Here is where you can add the user.
Make sure when you click on Add to change the location to your domain name so you can add that user.

This is a Windows 2000 computer. I don't see a Remote Tab when I right-click on My Computer. Is it somewhere else?

Sorry about that, you need to open the Terminal services configuration in adminstrator tools and then double click on the RDP TCP connection then you will see the remote tab. This is a win 2000 server correct?
