Mac OS X changing Network settings for non-admins

How do you allow non-admins on Mac OS X Leopard, to change network settings?  I've got a few users who have laptops and use Verizon wireless cards.  After they use the card, and then come back to the office and plug into the LAN network, the LAN card won't pick up an IP.  The setting is set to use the wireless card.  

We then need to go to the machine to put in the administrator password to unlock the settings and choose the LAN card.  How can I allow the user (non-admin) to change the network settings?  Thanks.

In System Preferences->Network setup another location with the LAN settings (and it might pay to rename the Verizon settings). Then the non-admin user can select their location in the Apple menu and the network settings changed for them.

Can you leave the network settings unlocked?

Once the computer restarts, the settings are locked again.
