Here's something better... it took me a few hours to find - I have seen
this before and I really wanted to know how to do it.
Basically, if you are gonna use NAL as your new shell (as is likely with
ZENworks) then you can lock them out of explorer using Zenworks, but still
allow them access to particular sub-trees. Try the following:
This starts an explorer window rooted at "C:\PROGRAM FILES" and there is
no way to get outside of this.
So I have created two application packages that just run explorer to give
them access only C:\USER (for temporary files) and U:\ (for storing files
on the network in their home directory).
It doesn't solve all the problems (like the File Open and File Save dialog
boxes) but combined with Zenworks I think it could be very handy indeed.

Thanks very much, it was much appreciated. I am trying to pass it around
the fac. of engineering now so that others can access as well.
