You can:
disable the user account in Active Directory if you don't want them to access network resources.

disjoin PC from domain, create local users on the PC and have them login as a local user.  

You can use Windows XP migration wizard to export and import the user profile before you disjoin the PC from domain but you will not have access to the network resources by default. Items such as printers may need to be remapped and there will be no default access to network resources unless you leave the AD account enabled and provide static mappings to them
