My company use Windows 2003 Server with Active Directory, and DHCP enabled.
Most of the users works with Win XP and some with vista.
We use a print server and an Isa proxy server too.

From time to time, there are some students that work with us, and they must have limited access to our network. They must have only access to the internet, network printers and No access to the network shares. This is because some of our users share their folders wilth complete access (something that we cant control) , and the student can retrieve some info from that.
I use GPO to hide network places, but if the user puts in the address bar \\computer they can access.

My problems.
Disable access to network shares for the student users.
Enable network printers to this users, maybe a script to install automatically.

Any suggestions ?
Sorry for my english :)
Thanks in advance
