for sure it is no problem with xp,
you have to download the policy editor at ms, which is included 
microsoft office resource kit tools (poledit.exe) , follow the 
instructions and how to by ms or google arround there are many helpfull 
but restricting a user to a special win machines is a feature
from the user account settings, i think , which only can be done with 
ldap backend and samba ( at my current knowledge ), neverless you can do 
helpfull thing with policies
i use it for giving non adult users group a content filter proxy and 
permit them to edit the proxy setup in ie
