To remove Windows NT / Windows 2000's ShutDown button from the Start Menu, apply the following registry hack :
Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
Name: NoClose
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 1

NOTE you can farm out a registry change via group policy :)

For the Group Policy version of the above...

User Configuration
Administrative Templates
Start Menu and Task Bar

Remove and Prevent Access to the Shutdown Command

Alongside that there's also "Add Logoff to the Start Menu" if you need it.
