    I believe you would have to use the group policy editor and edit the abilities for the group you want and place your family members accts in it

    There are certain programs available which specialise in this.
    One which springs to mind is Winshield but I don't know if they've released a WinXP compatible version yet.
    Winshield can disable absolutely everything. From hiding desktop items, to disabling My Computer, Run, Help, Control Panel and even entire drives (useful for disabling something like a floppy/cd).

    More Info on Winshield: http://www.win2000mag.com/Articles/Index.cfm?ArticleID=5405

    Hope this helps,
    Patrick
