This can also be done with the Restricted Groups group policy:
http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/sag_scerestrictgroups.mspx?mfr=true

Keep in mind this will remove anyone from the group who is not in the policy (Learned this the hard way).  You can also use the net localgroup command from a computer startup script to add it to all computers under the policy.  Here is the syntax:

net localgroup "Administrators" "domainname\username" /add

Let me know if you have any questions or need clarification

What do you mean by "user rights"?    Are you talking about changing the read/write permissions on files?
