I want to block www.myspace.com on my Windows 2003 server, can this be done with DNS, I know that it will not block the actual ip address but it could slow someone down by stopping name resolution.  Any help would be appreciated.

Just add a dummy entry for myspace.com.  You could point it to your local intranet home page or something.
