I have recently setup a new SBS 2008 Std server.  I have all of my machines joined to the server.  My question is, how can I give end users local admin rights to their PC's?  Normally, logged in as a user with domain admin rights I would right click My Computer, manage, etc.  Now when I try to do that the only location I have to browse is the local PC.  The server doesn't show up.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

You can now do this via the SBS console, open network tab, and find the PC you want to give access. Now just right click it, and computer prorerties. select User Access and you can set it there.

The problem was that the PC's were statically addressed from the old network settings.  Once I set them to use DHCP all worked well.  Thanks for your assitance.
