Registry Permissions

How do I give a user or group account permssions to modify the registry.  Let's say, for example, that I want to give UserX permission to read / modify the contents of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.  How do I do it?

Open regedit as an admin.  (Start > Run > "regedit.exe")
Right click the Top Level Folder you want to give permissions.
Add the user/group
Check off Full Control, or Special Permissions.
Click ok
