By making them Power Users should give you every thing that you have asked for though it wouldn't be my preferred setup as I don't trust my end users enough to allow them to install untested software on any mission critical business systems.

I'm taking it for granted here that all the clients are running XP workstations as you haven't specified this just the 2003 Domain.

Firstly I agree with HAL, given users these rights is not good practice, especially if you belong to a company who are strictly audited.

If you currently use group policy objects in your domain that are defined, applying restrictions, adding them to Power Users may not sufficient.

I agree with the others. Giving users power user rights and letting them install software (which you might not have licenses for) is a risk that you have to decide you want to take.

I also found my CRM software that the entire company users does not allow users as power users. This might be a problem with software that you run.
