I have windows 2003 small business server and 5 user accounts. The one account I login to several computers throughout the office during the day. I have some quirky issues. Do I need to add more cals. I am pretty positive I am licensed per user rather than per device as I have more than 8 computers connected to the server

how many licences do you have? 5?
Do you get an error on the server (console) about licencing? You can check event viewer if you are unsure
What kind of errors do you get? Is the domain setup for a roaming profile?

So what is your problem?? I don't see it from your post. Do you need guidance on licensing?

I guess I am wondering if even though I am licensed per user, if I logon to the server with the same user from multiple computers at the same time does this use up 1 user cal?

If you have PER USER licensing, than same user on different PSs will use only one license. PER DEVICE - every domain computer will use one license. This is used in environment where multiple users use same PC
