I have an SBS 2003 domain with 20 users. One user in particular is complaining that when she comes in each morning, it says that the Administrator was last logged in to the PC. Well, thats me and I wasn't. Has anyone ever heard of SBS somehow getting its wires crossed and when you log into one PC remotely, you actually get logged on to a different one..or anything similar?

There are DNS issues that can cause that.  You think you are going to one machine, but the DNS is pointed you to a different IP address.  You can also easily check to make sure you are at the right computer by checking the computer name.  To double check that it isn't keeping the administrator name in the login box every time, have the user log out and then see if it says their name or administrator when they log back in.  I've seen that issue before where the registry has the username administrator hard coded for login and you have to delete that to allow the end user to see their login name.

I have never heard of this.  Usually remote connectivity is done by name or IP address (also possible from with in the server if I remember correctly) and so it would be hard to connect to the wrong computer unless you typed the name wrong or the IP address.  Maybe the computer is just for some reason remembering the last time the Administrator logged on.  I would have her log in then log back out and attempt a log on again and see if it is still showing the administrators name.  Just a Quick thing you can try.  Let me know :) Hope this helps.
