It appears that my domain Win2003 AD users can add machines to the domain.

The Domain installation is default without much changes.

1) Can this be stopped
2) Is there a way to display everyone who has the ability to add a computer to the domain? I can see this with effective rights on a per user basis, I would like to find out how these machines have been getting added and stop this.

Yes, this is controlled by group policy.

Computer config- windows settings- security settings- local policies- user rights assignment- add workstation to the domain

If you have multiple policies, you'll have to figure out which one is controlling this. You can use the resultant set of policy tool to help with this- http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;323276
