Yes you can.

You can create many users who will be either Limited users or Adminstrators.

In CONTROL PANEL (click START, then CONTROL PANEL) you have the option to create new users. If you use the wizard you are asked wht type you wish to create. With existing users, you have the option to change the account type.

However there is only ONE true Administrator account.

Its only available from Safe Mode and is more powerful than the Computer Administrator account.

So you have

Administrator (only 1), Computer Administrator (Many) and User accounts (Many).
