SBS2003 Restricting Internet Access - Allowing certain sites

First of all let me give you an overview of my setup.  

I have a SBS2003 server with 2 nics.  1 for lan (switch) and the other in the ADSL modem for Internet Access.  Have about 16 xp clients.

Currently all machines/users have full internet access.  What I require is to limit this access to pre-defined websites only (about 10 sites).  In addition to this I require the administrator to have full internet access.

Please help as this is annoying me.

You could upgrade to SBS Premium Edition and use the ISA server.

How do I check if I have premium edition installed? I know i should know this but it has been a long time since i did the installation and I can't remember which version i used.

You could look for an ISA dashboard among the administrative tools.

I think you need ISA or a similar alternative ( http://www.winproxy.com/).  Installing ISA on Premium is explained in the following document:
