How to give user typical rights on domain but full rights on his pc.

On a small all-Microsoft network with domain controll, I want to give users normal domain-user rights on the domain, but full control on thier own computers.
Seems like it would be easy, but I can't find a way.

Add the domain account to the local machines Adminnistrator Group.

If your users move computers every now and again, you can put the DOMAIN\Domain Users group in the local machines Administrator group to save you having to add the new user everyime someone moves computers.

Unless there's good reason to give end-user full admin right, otherwise, why do it.
Once you give end-user admin right, they will be able to do wild things that eventually you will have tough time managing it, even with domain admin. If you give all users to all PCs, they will have access to other PC as well which is also bad when comes to security. Most users save confidential documents on their PC even when they were told to save on a server. If user have full admin right to other PC, they can read eveything on other PCs by default.

That is very true.  What the author needs to weight up is management time to enable things that run as local admin to work as a power user / standard user vs. security.  This really should only be used as a temporary workaround something while you configure it to work correctly and within the scope of your security procedures / policy.
