You want my answer to your second question, or the college's faculty 
answer? I think I answered it already though. They want it, they most of 
the time get it.

I am not asking to utilize a benefit of AD, just asking if there is 
anything easier in XP than it was in NT for locking down the machine. I 
presume the answer to that is "not without AD" and that is ok. I am simply 
pursuing the possibilities. Hoping to find someone that has experienced 
this already. User's want to add software, I don't want them to screw with 
the Network configuration, the OS, or my servers. Am I asking too much? 
Probably!

Thanks for the input.
