if you use VLANs you can simply put each user on a different one and
not allow them to talk at the router. a simpler way is to just use
a decent switch that has private VLAN or port seperation function .eg.
Cisco 2950/2960 series which has 'switchport protected' so hosts
cant see each other directly through the switch...or at all if you
decide so as the VLAN termination/router. dont be tempted to use
singular netmask (eg 255.255.255.255) that will isolate each system
via TCP/IP but they'll happily see each other still via netbios and
IPX is they have those protocols running.
