Allowing access to only five Web sites

I am interested in restricting IE 6 browser Internet access such that only five Web sites are allowed to be accessed. All attempts to access other sites should be denied. Do you have any particular suggestions?

Set up a proxy server to cache the five Web sites, and configure the IE browsers to use the proxy to access "the Internet" which would be limited to those five sites. IE does not have a built in feature to restrict itself to just five specific sites. You could also configure a firewall to filter on HTTP requests and block all that are not in the five selected domain names.
