The Server 2003 is limited to a single console connection and two other RDP connections. If you need more users to login and work on the same time, this must be a Terminal Server.
The users needs also a licenses (This is called CAL's). Conatct the company you  buy Software.

2003 Server does not support USERS connecting to it without getting Terminal Services Client Access Licenses (now sold as Remote Desktop Client Access Licenses).  2003 permits two ADMINISTRATORS plus a console session for remote access, but to suggest USERS should be permitted to use them is,, in my opinion, irresponsible and dangerous.  Furthermore, some applications may not work appropriately if the server is not properly configured for users.
And Citix is an alternative to Terminal Services
and here is a third-party alternative http://tsplus.net/
