best way to controll access to network?

I have been reading articles on MS that talk about making Network Access Groups, etc. to control what people connect to your network so you can prevent viruses and other problems from being brought in through mobile computers. Since we have a small network I would like to be able to put something like this in place because I thought that it might be easier to plan given our size.
We have a Windows 2003 domain and I would like to be able to just put some simple rules in place that would forbid people from making network connections and using the internet without first being cleared for things like virus software/scan and hardware/software levels.

Is there a good way to get something like this done and are there some documents that can take me throught it?

The stuff on MS was very abstract and didn't explain the process much....

It's out there, and very available, but -- it'll cost you...

Very expensive for the server and manager

Microsoft's Quarantine server might be a better fit for your smaller org..

one more thing though....The MS quarantine seemed best suited for remote clients. Do you think there would be a way to apply that to someone who comes into the office with a laptop and plugs it in?
