How can I see what a computer name that a particular user is logged into from the sbs server.  In other words; jsmith is logged in to a workstation, how can I find out what the computer name is of that workstation he is logged into?

"There is a program called NBTscan that will also do what you want it to do. Because most computers have NetBios over Tcp/IP enabled, you can scan an entire range of IP addresses and it will report back what the computer name is and who is logged onto it."

Microsoft has a tool called psloggedon  that will also tell you that information:

Make sure you specify user name rather than computer name for your scenario.
