Exact steps to have a privileged group policy for a set of users without make them memeber of domain admins

I would like to have the following privileges for a set of users in my AD.

1. They should be able change network settings.
2. Should able to install/uninstall softwares.
3. Should able to log on locally to their systems.
4. Should have access to the control panel items.

I want to achieve these though a group policy. I do not want to make them to any privileged groups like domain admins, network admins etc.. I need to set it up the lap tops of our newly appointed maintenance engineers who should have the above facility. I tried a few things but it gives them more privilege than I want.

Group Policy will only allow you to make changes within the scope of the Windows security model. You can restrict and unrestrict objects all you like, but the end factor is that if users are not administrators, they will not be able to make changes to system-critical folders, files or settings.

For desktop maintenance users, they would need a user account which is a member of the LOCAL 'Administrators' group on each PC. This would give them the ability to administer settings on the local computer without giving them domain or server-management rights.
