Realistically it is nearly impossible to restrict them under certain conditions.
Maybe a bit more to this than just restricting a user and rights depends if the user is an administrator or a roaming profile.
no accesss to hard disk, maybe a work around is to create a small partition for this user only and then make him/her a limited user.
Go to Start Menu>Control Panel>and Users to add a new user. Then create the restricted account.

There's this one nicely detailed using the gpedit.msc it's for windows 2000 but is very similar to xp

Here's a few more tools to manage these sort of things, sometimes group polices can be circumvented

for the hard drive maybe a software or tool works wonders

it is not really possible to restrict users like in the old days they all know the cracks and hacks learn it at school and off the internet
If they have administrator accounts you are very limited can't have your cake and eat it too
we see it here a lot how to we restrict an administrator you can't really.
But I hope it helps
