I'd like to know if there is any method for preventing code execution from removable media (CD, floppy, USB/Firewire portable drives).  For extra credit, I'd also like to know if something similar is possible with FAT32-formatted partitions on my hard drive.  The target OS, if it matters, is XP Home SP2.

Thanks in advance :)
