Depends upon your terminal server.  NT4 and W2000 - yes.  W2003 - no 
(unless they added the EnableMultipleUsers parameter from W2000).  I 
wrote a kind of wordy paper about this: 
http://www.docs.hp.com/en/5015/Samba-TerminalServer_104Final.pdf.  This 
paper version does not include the W2000 fix, which is the above 
parameter and hotfix Q818528.  I have not looked to see if Microsoft 
ever fixed this on W2003.  I can send you the whitepaper with the W2000 
fix incorporated, if you want it (i never posted the updated version).
