I'm running windows 2003 server and I need some instructions on how to make a group (all staff) local power users on whatever XP Pro computer they log into through active directory.  I probably wont check this until Sunday Afternoon sometime.

Best bet would be to add all those users to one Domain Group (If you're not in a domain, then get some good walking shoes) , and use a GPO to assign those user "Power User" status on all domain workstations (Which should also be in some sort of OU, so they arenlt logging into your servers)

I have a domain. Sorry I didnt make the question clear enough.  How do you do that through Group Policies and Active Directory. I have my group of users that I want to be "power users" in a container. But where and how in the GPO can I make them 'Power Users' locally to what ever workstation they log into?

You will use Restricted Groups in Group Policy to do this.

An example is here adding a Global Group to the local Administrators Group
