You can't do that with Windows XP. Simple as that. – Ben Pilbrow Jul 8 '11 at 9:50

Upgrade them to a better operating system. Multi user capability was introduced AFTER xp, and still only one user is allowed for a non-server at the same time.

Cannot be done, you can get access to the same desktop using VNC but that will not be practical for simultaneous use, only for troubleshooting, etc.
