If you are running kde it's a doddle.  The way that did it on our servers can 
be found at http://www.openhgs.org/it.cgi/Bart - scroll down until you come 
to the section "locking down the desktop"  The kicker might well cause you 
problems though;  in kickerrc "Applets=" changed to "Applets2=" (depending on 
your version) and I can't tell you at which this changed.

The desktop image is more challenging under kds; you can lock it down 
in /usr/share/config/kdesktoprc but it is possible for them to change it.  
The only way I have found to lock down the image can be found at 
http://www.openhgs.org/it.cgi/InclAllServers - scroll down to 11/11/05
