Well, you had the right idea for that originally. I don't know what the interface is for client access to the AS/400 exactly but is it possible that, in a limited user mode, access to the AS/400 could be run in Administrator mode (w/o giving the users themselves the account password?). You might check with support for your AS/400 or the particular client access interface to see if they acknowledge that it can only be run from XP Pro as an administrator or have some work-arounds prepared.
Off-topic but in my experience, the benefits of having the users operating at anything less than Priveledged User or local Administrator for their machine isn't worth the myriad of headaches caused by crippling them and always in the really urgent and time-critical instances. Prescribe what conduct you expect from them in corporate policy or what-have-you but don't actually lock down their PCs. JMHO.
