Make the Default User a PowerUser

How do you make the Default User account automatically give power user privileges to anyone who logs into a PC from AD? Or do you assign this ability somewhere else in XP.

Example I have a PC on a domain, when a domain user logs in to the PC for the first time i want the default profile to give them PowerUser ability. I have configured the Default profile for everything i want but this one last little bit.

Any ideas?

Just add the "Domain Users" group in the local "PowerUsers" group.

Thanks, I was thinking of it a different way, but that works just fine!
