If you want to tie your users to be using just their Pc, it can be done in the properties of the user account in AD Users and Computers. Go to properties -> Account _> Log Onto and give the ip address of the user's client machine which you want him/her to use.

Nothing native in windows/ad will do that.

You should give a look to a 3rd-party software solution named UserLock, that allows to:
- Restrict user access
- Limit concurrent logins
- Monitor logins in real-time
- Remotely lock and log off suspicious users

Creating Active Directory Users from a Text File

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

Unfortunately, it doesn't look too easy, as described here - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/237282

Looks like there is a tool required on all client computers before you can use this method. Anyway, it's all explained above, have a look and see what you think...

Oh, just in addition to that - I imagine it must be relatively easy to deploy this tool to clients using a log on script or similar... So it doesn't mean you have to trudge around to every desktop installing it... :)
