I'm not too sure about this, but could you open IE in a kisok type mode where 
you remove all of the address bars.  They should only be able to see the page 
that was sent to them and navigate through that site.  
Now if they were sent google's web page they could get around this, but it may 
be a way to meet somewhere in the middle.

They won't be able to get off their subnet, never mind the internet.
