isolate 4 computers on existing network to just internet connection, but not a kiosk

Last Modified: 2013-12-23
Hello.  I have an existing network (Win2003 Server with Active Directory, DNS, third party apps including license managers and clients running Windows XP) and would like to add 4 computers that will only have internet access.  The normal clients access shares on the server and the internet, while the new clients should only have access to the internet.  I would like to ensure that the 4 new clients can not even see the server or the regular clients.  

If I plug the new computers into my network, how can I let the new users have local control, but make it so they can not see my existing network (and only have access to the internet)?
