You can install the admin tools on thier PCs by installing the AdminPak.msi on their machines (found on the Windows\System32 folder on the server). they will only be able to use the tools on the objects which you grant them rights over - the simplest way to do this is to use the delegation of control wizard see http://www.windowsnetworking.com/kbase/WindowsTips/Windows2000/AdminTips/Miscellaneous/UsingtheDelegationofControlWizardStep-by-step.html

And you can make it even more simple for them by creating taskpads http://www.petri.co.il/create_taskpads_for_ad_operations.htm
