How to prevent logon of W95 user that knows domain, TCP/IP and username/password

How can you prevent someone with W95 from logging into the network if he/she knows the domain, TCP/IP setting, and has the username and password?
The best way I can think of is to disable or delete their user account from the domain controller. This will allow them to still use their Windows 95 machine but not gain access to network resources.
