Restrict Remote Desktop users

I want to setup a stand alone remote desktop server (TS) using server 2008, it won't be attached to the domain and just used to view information.

I don't want users to be able to copy to their clipboard, print, see their drives or if possible print screen, the last one I know may be difficult but I thought I'd throw it in there.

Thanks in advance.

I've done all of what you have said and it's made no difference, it still allows me to do what I want on the connection, is it because it isn't attached to the domain? That shouldn't really matter should it?
