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.

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

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
