disable/grey out/hide Site Settings menu item in Site Actions dropdown list for SP 2007

I need to give members 'contribute' access but don't want them to mess with site settings. How do I  disable/grey out/hide 'Site Settings' menu item in 'Site Actions' dropdown list? Is there an easy way to do this via 'Edit Permissions Level'?  Im unfamiliar with sharepoint designer.

You will need to create a new permissions level that only has List Permission and "only" has Open at the site Level.

If you do that, your people will no longer have contribute permissions.

Thank you, JMayhair9195 for your input. Im not clever enough with SP2007 to understand the repercussions of adding a new permission level...altho I do appreciate 'pushing the envelope' from my point of view.
Ach1lles: I had a person try this after giving them 'contribute' access. Having confirmed that this does work (see, I wasn't fooling when I said I'm not proficient in SP2007), this is the simplest solution to use.

I appreciate both your help.
