Windows 2000 lockdown for certain user, no AD

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.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi jakyll,

you will have to play with the local machine policy - this can be very odious and you need to be careful as the local policy applies to all users inclusive of admin unless you follow this procedure to the step..
