What those types of users need is either a simple curses driven menu (if you want to be elaborate and give them graphics that is) or maybe lynx set to start up at a local html page and all the href's are file:// with lynx set to autorun file://  if you're dealing with users logging in with X then use firefox instead of lynx.

To me, unfortunately, Webmin, Virtualmin and Usermin are a bit too geeky
for the Joe Average user. If you're talking about admin users, OK, but
simple end users who can't even set up their email client... they can
get into trouble very easily.
