Can I allow non-administrators to log into console session?

Last Modified: 2013-11-21
I need to allow a user to log into a Windows 2003 server via Remote Desktop. I want them to be able to use the mstsc /console switch so that the can use the console session. However, the only way I know of doing this is to add this users to the local administrators group, which I don't want to do. Is there a way to let the user log into the console without adding them to admins?
