power users do not have the ability to change system settings so some software installations will be allowed but other will not be. You can possibly make domain admins of them but then they can access anything anywhere and defeats the purpose of security. Possibly make the domain users group a member of the administrators group on the computers themselves. That way they are all administrators on just the computers and not on the servers or whole network and you can still implement security on the network.

Good luck!

Yes, add "Domain Users" to each computer's Local Administrators group.  This will give them install rights.  You can even demote the users at the domain level from Domain Power Users to just Users.
