How can I make Power users have exactly the same access as Administrators on XP

Hi,

Can someone please tell me the permissions, rights, everything that i will need to set within a GPO, in Windows 2003, to allow Power Users running on XP, to have the same access and permissions as Administrators.

By making them local administrator. Why would you go through the trouble trying to simulate this, while it's simply available?

Which, BTW is not a good idea security-wise. It's against the least-user-privilige principle.

OK ... I can understand that.
As you probably know: Power Users and Administrators are local built in groups.
You can have a look at their rights: Control Panel / Administrative Tools / Local Security Policy / Local Policies / User Rights Management. On the right you'll find certain rights and who has access.
But there is more: permissions on the registry and on the file system.
To see those use AccessEnum from the sysinternals guys: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/Security/AccessEnum.mspx
