Someone correct me if I am wrong but as I recall, XP didn't use activation servers. I think they started that with Vista. I worked at a university help desk once upon a time and did a lot of OS...

No, you can't just "lock down" Windows XP or 98. There are lots of vulnerabilities that have never been fixed in them since they reached end of life. Although I doubt anyone would waste their time...
