your password is like a condom - you don't share it, you change it
regularly; and its best to avoid reuse.

The reason why it worked on 2000 and not on 2003 is that it's most likely
Terminal Services Configuration is set to restrict each session to one
session on 2003.
Users reconnecting to disconncted sessions that are not theirs is reason

I have a tech that setup several offices connecting in to our Citrix farm

to logon to a published desktop to these servers.  Apparently this use to
actually work before we upgraded.
We now run 6 Metaframe XP FR3 boxes on Server 2003 sp1 boxes.  Now when they
happen to logon to this published desktop and hit the same server, the first
session will get overwritten/disconnected.
Can someone help me list out the MULTIPLE reasons that this type of setup is
a bad idea.  And also help me understand why it might have worked on the old
servers and not the new servers?
