Web Restrictions using IE7 and Windows XP SP2?

Does anyone know of a 3rd party program to limit web access on Internet Explorer 7 using Windows XP? I'm looking to allow only specific websites to be displayed. I know Vista has the 'Web Restrictions' option under 'Parental Control', but I need something for XP. As this isn't a major concern, a free program/addon would be preferred, but all suggestions are welcome.

Thanks,
Dean

Is this the only available software to do this? What about server side policies? I'm still looking at other possibilities, sorry for the late response.

Net Nanny will also do the job. But CyberPatrol is more commonly used

I do not know of server side policies to restrict specific websites.
