You can do this through group policy settings. If you are on a 2000 or 2003 domain then it will be much easier. I say that because you can push group policy settings out applying them only on the server but if all 30 of your machines are standalone then you will have to modify the group policy settings on each machine.

Modify the following fields on Group Policy:

User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Control Panel/Display/
Hide Appearance and Themes tab - Enabled
Hide Desktop tab - Enabled
Hide Screen Saver tab - Enabled
Hide Settings tab - Enabled
Prevent changing wallpaper - Enabled
Remove Display in Control Panel - Enabled

Note: If you are applying this Group Policy in a domain I recommend created an OU - Organizational Unit, applying the group policy to that OU, and then putting the users that you want to apply in that OU.  

Hope this helps!

On each machine, go to Start, Run, type 'mmc'.
Then go to File, Add/Remove Snap-in, click Add, click group policy editor and then click add and then close.
Finally click OK, and then make the changes that I mentioned above in the Group Policy.
