What Group Policy settings have to be applied so that users are able to install software on their workstations without having to make them an administrator?

Thanks in Advance!

On NT Workstations you need to have either Domain or Local Admin access to install / remove software.

I'm inquiring about Group Policy settings that would allow this action not group membership.

You could make them backup operators or power users. This way you prevent them to manage user and group accounts.
I would try first with backup operators.
A group policy change would not resolve your problem but you can try "restore/back up files and directories", "load and unload device drivers", "modify firmaware values".
I am realy curious with what you come up!
Good luck.

I think I should have mentioned that these were windows 2000 group policies that I am trying to do this through.

You can use "Always install with elevated privileges" from:
Administrative Templates->
Windows Components->
Windows Installer.
You must enable this in both Computer and User Configuration.
It directs Windows Installer to use system permissions when it installs any program on the system.
