Limiting user to logon of one computer on a domain network

Hi. I currently have a network with SBS 2003 and 7 client computers using Win XP Pro. Currently each user logs onto a computer with their username and password. They can, however, if they wish, log onto another computer without logging off the previous computer.

Is there any way in group policy to allow a user to only log into one computer at a time?

Thank you.

Unfortunately nothing in group policy that I know of.  There is LimitLogon

I've never tested that on SBS.
You can limit specific computers from the Account tab  >> "Log on To", but that is not what you really want here.
Thanks

Thanks Mike,

That seems perfect. I downloaded it. I haven't installed it yet. Does the product have a website? What does it cost? It talks about it but doesn't give much information about where and how to get the program other than you can download it from there.

Not a ton of info on it, there is a TechNet article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/237282  
...not that great
 
I've not deployed this in production
I know there is a web server component and then you have to configure SSL for the limit logon web service then setup limitlogin in AD
...they could have made it easier.
