I have a small office network with a domain.  I have a training area that has some computers in a workgroup.  I want to add them to our domain.  I have a resource available to assist and would like to grant the resource permission to add computers to the domain.  I know i could elevate the resource to "domain admin" but this seems like overkill.  How can i setup the account to have the ability to add computers to the domain?

you can give that use account operators priledges or you could, add the computer account to domain first and when you that you should see a button on who can add that computer to the domain, select that users account in AD and he will be able to add that computer to the domain.

Be careful about adding the user account operator status as although this will give them rights to add a PC they will also be able to reset password and perform other things to users...
Rather just delegate out the permission to add a computer to domain.
To do this then you just need to right click on the name of the domain and choose "DELEGATAE CONTROL" you can then choose the user account or group and then add the correct permission you need...
