Can someone recommend a step-by-step guide to locking down a remote desktop session into a 2003 Server? Specifically, what are the group policy settings to give someone access to a single folder, an application on the Server, their home/network directories? We don't want the remote users to be able to install or access anything else on the File Server.

That's should be a good start. Do you know how to give a remote desktop user access to a single data folder on the desktop, nothing more? Would I use folder redirection to point the desktop folder to a specific network share?
