AD2003 Policies

We have a group of 12 PCs for training purpose.  We would like to come up with a default image for a wall paper, setup default homepage, also prohibit user to install, etc... The issue is everyone will log in with their own username and password, so we couldn't setup the policy by user configuration.  Is it anyway we can do this by AD2003?  Please help me out!

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This can be accomplished by creating groups.  Assign each peson to a group and set policies for each group, not the individual.

You can do this with Group settings.
You can create an OU and put all the user accounts into the OU.
Then create a group policy to include for, example homepage, control panel restrictions etc and then link this policy to the OU.
