Q

Is there an easy secure method to let users log on with minimal access?

We would like to allow computer users and non-computer users to check in and out of work via a computer terminal on a Win2k network with Win2k or XP workstations. Is there an easy secure method to give non-computer (no login) users a way to log in execute the program to check in/out and then log out of Windows without giving them more access than they need?
I can give a recommendation for a concept: Kiosk. Configure the system to log on as a pre-defined user account with limited access. Launch the check in/out application by default, restrict all other access.
