Are you talking about Remote Desktop?  If so, are you just asking how to enable access for two users to an already deployed remote desktop environment?  Or are you starting from scratch with nothing setup?

...kinda need more details in your question to be of any help...

Click on Start > right click Computer > Properties > change settings > remote tab > select the required option from Remote desktop (i would prefer 2nd option) > Apply > Ok
After this add those two users to Remote Desktop Users -
Start > administrative tools > Computer management > System tools > Local users and groups > groups

if those users need admin rights with RDP access, you need to add them in administrators group.

Win2k8 allows two rdp sessions by mstsc command and a console session by mstsc /admin command so it offers total 3 connections.

No tmsa12, that's not correct.

By default Windows allows for TWO remote desktop connections without requiring additional remote desktop services CAL's specifically for administrative purposes.  That's been true of windows server OS's for as long as I can remember.

What is also true is that only one "console" session is allowed at any one point in time.  If you launch the remote desktop app with the /admin switch then it connects to the console session on the remote machine.  (mstsc /admin).

If you got booted when your co-worker logged in then one of the following is true:
You were connected to the console session and your coworker booted you when he connected to the console session.
Your coworker used the same username and password to log in
You're using a special version of Windows that I've never heard of that has a special limit on remote desktop connections that no one else's Windows Server has
