Can I restrict access to device and/or restrict hours of usage on a local account on Win2k Pro?

Can I restrict the access to a device like CD writer for a local account on a Windows 2000 Professional machine? And can I restrict the hours of usage for a local account on a Win2k Pro machine?
To restrict the use of a CD-ROM, you will need to go to the Local Security Settings program in the Administrative Tools folder. Select "Local Policies" then select "Security Options." There is a policy option to "Restrict CR-ROM access to locally logged-on users only." With respect to your other question, you can restrict the hours of usage for a user when they are logging on to a domain.
