I am having a Domain Controller (win2003 server) and 50 PCs.
I want to prevent some users from logging into some PCs in the network.
I want also some PCs to be private, ie, only one user can logon to it.
How do I do that?
All PCs are running WinXp + SP2.

You could go into AD Users and Computers and for a specific user, click on the Account Tab in their user properties.  There is a button there that says "Log On To" and you can restrict users to only logging on to certain computers.
