Most of this can be done with permissions, i.e, create the user a regular user account, instead of making them an admin also. For tracking what programs they are using, there are several different methods in doing this. For tracking of Websites, the best solutions is to setup a proxy server, and set rules within it that will deny them access to anything that could possibly be harmful.

Haha....Novell is super easy to hack...

DirtBikeRidr - Check out a program called "Safe Eyes". I've recently heard about it and apparently it's the best. It might be useful for the internet part of your problem anyway.
