Add a user on WinXP SP2 for W2k domain server

Hi folks,
I  added a new workstation  (WinXP SP2) to an existing W2K server environment.  I am able to join the domain ok, and login as the  existing user.  However when I installed QuickBooks and one other software product, they don't run because there are insufficent rights for the user.  
I looked at the users listed, in Management Console (on the local workstation) and it only lists the 2 local users, Administrator and XYZ user that I added at startup.  If someone could refresh my memory on the procedures for adding a domain user to the local computer list so I may give the user sufficient rights for the programs.  I think this is what I need to do?  Currently it shows 3 users under documents and settings but only 2 in the management console, users.
thanks,

yep.  Login as the administrator.  Go to Control Panel, Users and Passwords.  Add a user.  Specify the Username and Domain name (NTLM version).  Then select "others"  and administrator should already be selected.  This is the computer administrator, not the domain administrator

Now log off and login as the user, and it should work

I think you need to add the user to the Power Users group on the workstation.  To do so, click on the groups folder in computer management, double-click power users, click add, click locations to select your domain, and then type some of the user's name, and click check names, the user should appear.  If the user still cannot open the software after logging off, I would try adding the user to the Administrators group on the workstation, which you should not have to.  I'm sure QuickBooks only needs power user rights.

Thanks folks,
I'll give it a try.  I do believe you are both correct.  I know QuickBooks says they only require Power Users, however I've had mixed results in the past and usually end up making them Administrators.  I 'm almost sure both procedures work to add the user.
thanks,
