Domain User Add Computers To Domain?

Windows 2003 Domain Controller, all computers in domain are Windows XP.

We have two new people in our group that we would like to be able to add computers to our domain.  They are regular "Domain Users", and we would like to keep them as such.  They will be adding computers via Control Panel >> System on the computer that is to be added.  How may we accomplish this?

I saw some threads regarding this, but it quickly got confusing.  I see that there is a policy on the DC at Domain Security Settings >> Security Settings >> User Rights Assignment that says "Add workstations to domain".

Will setting this policy (it is currently "not defined"):

a) OVERRIDE the default settings (as in, will I need to add Domain/Enterprise Admins to this policy as well?  or just those ADDITIONAL users I want to be adding computers?)

b)  Accomplish what I stated above.

Thank you.
