Setting up different permissions in Windows 2008 Server

I'm wondering if there is a particular group that can be used or created that allows a person to install and remove software but not have full administrative privileges?  
I am wanting to allow a particular helpdesk employee to install software for clients but I don't necessarily want to give them access to delete domain accounts, remove from the domain, etc.
Just a software and hardware installer basically.  Is this possible?

Unfortunately a lot of software installs still requires admin rights to install.  You could use restricted groups to give the helpdkesk employee or group admin rights on workstations

Restricted group will serve your purpose. It has done for me for the same purpose.
