On Windows, the "Power Users" is a local group, that is, it's members
are not stored on a domain controller, but on the local SAM of the
machine. Thus, if for an specific machine you want to make all Domain
Users to be Power Users, you'll need to use Windows administration tools
and *manually* add the "Domain Users" global group to the "Power Users"
local group of the machine.
