Apple Mac OSX 10.6.4 Local admin access question

One of my clients has a new mac running osx 10.6.4 and she is loggin in with a network managed account.  Everyone else in her dept is logging in with an admin account.  She needs to be able to download flash content, etc w/o it prompting her for an admin account each time.  How do I go about making her a local admin?  I have the network admin account credentials but I tried using it and it didn't work so I also wanted to make sure of the basic settings on her mac.

In a nutshell, I really don't know MAC's but want to help her.

Thanks!

Likely because it was disabled for the user/usergroup/machine or machine group. This is done in workgroup manager, in the preference settings under system preferences.
