Create the user in win2000.  Log off on 2000 as the current user.  Log on on 2000 as the different user.  Then test

only 1 user can logon to windows 7 pro at a time via remote desktop
shared resources can be access any given time

if you use third party software like vnc you can allow as many as you like but it shares the same desktop session.

You just login as the user you want.  
Admininistrator
User1
User2
etc.
The user must have Admin rights in order to use the Remote Desktop though.

I will explain my self, I have shared folder on win 7 and I would like to connect from win 2000 to this share folder with several users and to test that its working
so i created several users on win 7
now I am on server 2000 in the LAN and I would like to connect each time with diffrent user, so when i connected it asked me to enter user name + password so I did and it get me to the share folder, now i would like to connect with the second user i created but it still connect me with the first user, so how do i switch the users in win 2000 to check that i can connect with diffrent user each time

Thanks

To get concurrent sessions what I recommend is to create several shares on the server (as many as you want to test) and map network drive from windows7 with "Connect using different credentials" option.
