Changing registry key security

Hi, I need to be able to set the access level of a key when I write it to the registry, or change the access level of an existing one. I need to change it to "full access for everyone" , when the user id performing the registry edits is not an administrator.
This is under Windows 2000, I'm *slightly* familar with ACL's, which I'm assuming I need to use, and the SetPriviledges API ..

can anyone aim me at source code,examples, or a class to handle this kind of thing?

thanks,
Ian

There is just not a lot of information about this subject anywhere.

The following URL has a lot of information I've found useful:
