How do I prevent a UG from writing on drive C:?

I have two UGs in a domain; how to I prevent one of them from writing on drive C: on their client computers?  I tried using Windows Steady State, but that was a disaster!

As I understand it, they store documents in local My Documents.
Configure Folder Redirection through GPO to redirect the folder to a network share
User Configuration\Windows Settings\Folder Redirection\My Documents

Use roaming profiles and enable the following policy setting in a GPO linked to OU with the computers
Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\User Profiles\Delete cached copies of roaming profiles

If I understood correctly, you want to prevent members of the group to write to their local c: drive when they are logged on to client machines. Do you mean root of drive or whole drive? They will hardly be able to do anything with no  write rights.

They are students; consequently, they save their assignments everywhere, even when they have a flash drive!  Maybe just Documents and Settings should be protected... I don't know... it's really a headache to clean up after them...

Is it possible to redirect to a folder on the Server?  (sorry for the lame questions, but I'm just finding my way around Server 2003 R2).

Yes, you share a folder on file server and configure the folder redirection policy to use a folder on that network share (\\server\share$\%username% or similar).
