Delegating control of a single windows 2003 server in a domain

We have regional centers and each regional center has a local DC. We have a tech at each regional center and I am wondering what would be the easiest way to give him "local" administrative privileges on the DC. I do not want to make him a domain admin. I would normally do this by going into Computer Management and assigning him to the local administrator group but this being a DC that is not an option. Any feedback is appreciated.

What kinds of things do you need him to do, unfortunately there is no easy way to be a full admin on a DC short of making them builtin admins/domain admins.    

Thanks
