Default Allowing one PC to opt out of internet

I have three PCs running XP on peer to peer network connecting to
internet via a switch and ADSL router there is also a USB print server
in the network and a wireless access point sending a signal dowstairs
for laptop use.

Is it possible to set up the network so that one of the PCs is not
automatically connected to the internet but can still function as a
full part of the network?

You may be able to block WAN access at the router, other solutions will
depend on how computer savvy the user is and what privileges his user
account has.
Probably the easiest is to set the wrong gateway and DNS servers in the
network settings, and make sure his account doesn't have administrator
privileges so he can't change them, but that will affect a load of other
stuff too.
