Which predefined group should I use to enable the user to be able to install program in their PC in a 2000 domain environment without giving them full admin priviledges?

Generally only administrators can install software on a computer.  

you can get around it by configuring a  group policy on your domain.

group policy can tell the windows installer system  to install with elevated privileges and allow the installation.
I can give you the path to the policy settings if you need me to.

Caution    Setting the Windows Installer system policy Always install with elevated privileges allows a user without administrator rights to the computer to install any Windows Installer package. Similarly, setting the policy Enable user to use media source while elevated allows users without administrator rights to install programs from a CD. The installation runs with elevated privileges, and the user has unlimited access to system files and the registry. Setting either of these policies leaves the computer highly vulnerable, potentially allowing an attacker to run malicious code on the computer.
