    Put the user in the local Users Group, add the user to Remote Users group (System Properties, Remote, Select Remote Users).  As he is a member of the local Users Group, he cannot change or install a lot.  He also might be unable to view some settings.  You can also add him to the Power users group, which will grant him a little bit more access.
    This cannot be done if the server is a DC.  Then you need to set permissions through AD and Group Policies.
    You can also send him Print screens of every setting.  I have had some clients in the past who prefer that (I hate it).
