Hide C Drive

Hello,
 

I have an XP computer that is a member of a domain on a 2003 server.  I have users remote desktop into the XP computer.  These users are members of the domain and listed in the 2003 server.  I wish to hide the C drive on the XP computer from the users that are remoting into it. I understand you would make changes to the Group policy, but I have no idea how to do it.  I only want the drive hiden when they are remoted in.

Thanks

2 confirmation questions...

The XP machine is the one that users log into through RDP?
and
The XP machine is the one that needs the C: drive hidden?

If yes to both, then create the gpo, and apply it to the OU that contains ONLY the XP machine.  Also, note that this is a User Config setting.  This means you'll have to use loopback policy processing to get this to apply, since you'll be applying it to ONLY the XP machine.

Sorry but that sounds a bit strange. Hiding or denying access to C-drive would in most cases render the remote sessions pretty much useless. What exactly are you trying to achieve or protect?

The remote user has their own drive to access.  Hiding the C drive prevents the user from saving a file to anywhere except where they are supposed to (their assigned drive).  Setting permissions does not work because some special software that is launched at login needs the C drive.  Hiding it in the explorer is the only option.  

I set the Xp machine up as its own organisational unit. Would I change the Group policy on the XP machine or the 2003 machine?
