Unless you are having RDP save or populate the username, I've found that it populates the user field with the last successful login to the remote system.

in the general tab I enter the user name, no password entered, and I save the settings.
The system still use the admin user name and password,
Where is the information saved in the XP system so I can delete and start fresh

Start --> Run: regedit

go to the following key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Terminal Server Client\Servers

From there you will see every address you've connected to.
Delete the key corresponding to the server you connected to and it will delete that entry.

Under the terminal server client\ I do not have a server option just Default tab
That have two folders default and MRUO the MRUO have the server name I am trying to RDP to,
I deleted the MRUO and the system still defaults to the administrator login.
I tried to reboot the workstation, and after reboot when I opened the RDP and selected edit the user name was administrator also I logged into the system as the user name and not as admin changed it to the user name with no success.

Then try this.
In folder options, unhide hidden files and folders.
Go to My Documents folder and you will see default.rdp
Delete this file and try again.

is it possible that the 2003 server is missing some configuration, and that the reason it will not except remote connections from the users and only from admin

Are the users part of the Remote Desktop Users group in Active Directory, if this is an AD environment.
If not, then make sure they are part of local Remote Users group.

Check your RDP connection properties (right click on the mstsc.exe) and see if you have added /admin to the command line.  Regular users cannot log in with this switch enabled.
