SharePoint checkout settings

I have some users who click on documents , spreadsheets, etc and they get a popup saying checkout, read only, and a checkbox to save to local drafts. Then some users only get the option to open or save. how do i get everyone to get the read only, check out, save a copy to my local drafts?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

An element of Office 2007 is required to be installed for that Local Drafts prompt to happen. Can you confirm the users that don't see the prompt are on an earlier version of Office than 2007?
