I cannot create an administrator user.  When I create a new user the option is "standard" or "administrator".  I check administrator and create the user.  If I select that user and go to Change Account Type, the account type has been set back to standard.  If I check administrator, the "Change Account Type" button greys out.

looks like you are in the Small Business Console tool in SBS 2008?Create the user and then add them to the Administrators group in Active Directory Users & Computers tool.

If is not a DC right click on Computer -> Manage -> Configuration -> Users
and create your user "testuser"
After this just click on Groups -> double click on Administrators and add your user "testuser"
