How do I overcome the Maximum Number of Computer Accounts a "User" can create on Domain?

I have a Windows Server 2003 Domain with over 500 file sharing users and want 1 ID that can add their machine to the domain.  Currently the one user ID (no admin rights) can only add 10 computer accounts and then get the error:

Your computer could not be joined to the domain because the following error has occured:

Your computer could not be joined to the domain.  You have exceeded the maximum number of computer accounts you are allowed to create in this domain.  Contact your system administrator to have this limit reset or increased.

My question is where is this limit reset/increase located so I may reset/increase it?

Create a GPO and place your user in it..  Then configure this setting:

Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\User Rights Assignment\Add computer to the domain

No good.

Still have the 10 computer account limitation.
I already added the ID to the User Rights Assignment under Local Policies.

Really need to know how to increase/reset the limitation.

BTW: What is a GPO?  I don't recognize that.

GPO = Group Policy Object..   You create these within the ADUC (Active Directory Users and Computers)..   If you do this and place your user in there, it should give them the proper rights to add computers to a domain..

OH..  the ADUC policy is placed on your Domain Controller, not in the local computer policy..
