Best practice to limit staff to logging on to the network from the 1 computer assigned to them ONLY?

Presently employees are frequently logging on from computers in other buildings on our campus instead of limiting their use to just the PC on their desk.  We don't (can't) use roaming profiles & this practice causes several problems I would like to avoid by preventing  their network access to the PC assigned to them only, if possible?

Small single site, W2K3 AD evironment.  Standard desktop O/S is XP Pro SP2.
