My question says it all :-)

I have about 20 mobile computers that will not be joined to the domain, I would like to be able to create a single profile for users to use thats really locked down, but the administrator logon should be fine....  short on time so i can't remember how to do this, or if i can without active directory.

thanks,
dan
