Hi Matt.

I've had some success adding the 'authenticated users' group to the 
powerusers group.  I think that the 'authenticated users' group consists of 
all users who authenticate against the domain.

If authenticated users is added to the local powerusers group, it may give 
you what you're looking for.

Again, my experiments with this are rather incomplete - I'd like to see how 
it works for you.  I'd also be interested in a XP pro setting.
