Is there a way to be able to give a user control over an OU and set them up to be able to access and manage Active Directory from their XP pro workstation?

Thanks in advance.

yea, you can delegate rights to users to be able to manage certain ou's, then give him access to the active directory and users tool.

have a look here for more info :

Once you delegate control to the users, how do they connect to AD?

You instal the normal admin pak which is in the windows admin share on a windows server

to follow up on my previous comment, the location to the adminpak is :

\\servername\admin$\system32\adminpak.msi, to customise what gets installed check out

If you run adminpak on a Windows 2008 server you will not get all the functionality.

You should run RSAT on Vista or Windows 7
