Win2003 Server local machine security

Hi guys,
I have recently setup a Win 2003 Server, with Win XP clients. I am using roaming profiles, and a wireless network. The problem is that when a user logs in to the network domain, their account on the client machine must default to a User account, which prevents the wireless network from running. I'm wondering if there is a way to set up the roaming profiles so that they have administrative rights on the local client machine, and if so how i can do this.

You will need to login to the Client Machine with its local administrator username and password and go to:

Start > Control Panel > User Accounts

Click "Add"

Input the Username and Domain of the "Domain User" you want to have local administrative rights.

Click Next

Choose the radio box that says "Other"

Make sure the drop down menu has "Administrators" Selected.

Then click finish.
------------------------------------------------
From now on when that Domain user logs into that machine, he will have administrative rights to the machine.

Thanks mate.
i eventually worked out that the reason i wasn't able to do this was because the DNS server hadn't been properly setup, and so the client machines weren't communicating well with the server.
