Default Disabling internet access for specific XP Pro users

Were running a win xp pro machine with 6 users on it. Ive been trying to find out how to disable internet access, or at least the ability to run Internet Explorer for specific users. Some users will be considered trusted and allowed to have access, others wont.

Ive been looking at the Local Security Settings section of windows. It appears you can disable access to a certain program, for example iexplore.exe, but I cant find any more fine grained access controls related to it. It appears to allow you to either block everyone on the computer from running the program, or, block everyone except administrators.

Am I missing a blatantly obvious option for this, if not, how would I go about doing what I am trying to achieve?

cheers.
