Hide Windows 2000 admin tools without the MMC

Does anyone know how I can hide only the admin tools from Win2K without using the MMC? I work in a Win2K server domain with 15 Win2K workstations. It can be locally or at the server or all at once.
I think the best way to prevent the use of the Admin tools is by Software Restriction Policies. Too bad they only work with Windows XP machines, or you'd be in the clear already. However, you might be able to get away with a tool in the Windows 2000 Server Resource kit: Appsec.exe. It's goal it to lock down specific .EXEs from running, such as MMC.EXE.
