How to i configure this any tutorials will be helpful.

Thanks

Create group in AD and give delegated permission to that group and add the user to that group..

You'll only need to install the Adminpak on the PC which the user will logon to.  But I wouldn't do that until after you've run the Delegation of Control wizard in AD and given the user the permissions you want.
