Active Directory Securtiy Perrmisions Question

The school system I work for has very tight security on their Domain Controllers.  So much so that they do not want the network Administrator at each school to have Administrator Permissions on the entire domain.  This creates an Interesting problem, as I need to find the exact individual permissions needed for these "Administrators" to be able to do their jobs.  I have managed to set AD so that these "Administrators"  can add a workstation to the domain, and create user accounts.  The major problem i am having lately is they are getting an Access Denied error when using the Network ID wizard in WinXP.  I need the exact permissions necessary for using the Network ID Wizard in WinXP without making them Domain level administrators.  I have searched TechNet and couple of other forums and have had no luck finding the correct permissions.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Environment:
Servers - Server 2003 R2 STD SP2
Workstations - Mix of WinXP SP3, & Win2k

I have granted users full control over their sites OU in AD using the security tab when using the advanced view rather than using the delegation wizard, I would also add that sites admin group/account to athe local admin group on all workstations and member servers for their site. You can also add them to any admin groups required, exchange admin dns admin etc.

Doing this effecticly makes them a domain admin for that OU and that OU only (except where they have been added to builtin global admin groups such as esxchange admins dns admin etc)

Thank You for the quick response.  I have been asked to setup Active Directory so that the site admin cannot delete anything in Active Directory.  This is why I have been hesitant to give them full control over their Site's OU.  However if giving them full control over there respective OU's is the only option to give them the permission needed then so be it.  Does anyone know of any other options?
