Is there a way that I can allow people to access shared network resources (easy part), while not allowing any logon to the physical server whatsoever?

All users, or specific users?  Disabling login for Administrative users will
severely hamper your ability to manage the system.

In Workgroup Manager, on the 'Advanced' tab for a user, select 'None'
for login shell.  That will prevent the users from logging into the system.

All but the administrators.  That helps, but what about the server itself... anyone can walk up to it, is there a way to disallow logon to the server, or do I just have to limit the preferences to the point that logging on is worthless?
