User rights & task bar

By pricepd ·
I have installed Windows NT workstation on a machine and have little experience with NT. I have a lot of experience with Win2K Pro. I have 2 questions.

I am trying to setup a user to be able to install programs (basically they will have administrative rights.) When I log them on to the Domain they do not have rights on the computer, and when I set them up on the computer they cant access all areas of the network and are prompted for a username and password when they try to connect to a network share.

Is there a way to give a Domain user administrative privilages on the individual PC like Win2K Pro?

The other Question is on the task bar, to the right of the start menu and the left of the tasks is a quick icon area on Win2k machines and Win98 machines, but it isn't available on Win NT. Is there a way to install it. I am running Explorer 6.0. Do I need to install explorer 5.5 and then Explorer 6.0 the get this feature?

Thanks,

Preston

User rights & task bar

1. To give a domain users administrative privilges on an individual machine, log on as administrator, run musrmgr, and add the domain user's account, or a domain group of which he is a member, to the local administrators group.

2. The Quick Launch bar was a part of Active Desktop, which came with IE4. To install it, there is a workaround which involves running IE 5 setup, so you may have to drop back to IE 5 (I don't know if 5.5 will work), then up it to 6 when you're done. See here:
