I may be making a mistake here, but I need to set up a user on a Windows 2003 Server to use it as a workstation with rights to install software and such without giving him Domain Admin rights.  The server is on a domain.  I don't see the "Power Users" group in AD.  Any ideas?

You can add the user to the local Administrators group on the server.

So, add the user's domain account to the local administrator's group?  This is ridiculously stupid.  I feel like an idiot.  Maybe I am?  No, wait!?!?!?  I'm so confused!

Thanks,
