I only have this groups in my setup: 
Domain Admins (S-1-5-21-3868592469-3950909796-2526674359-512) -> Domain Admins 
Domain Users (S-1-5-21-3868592469-3950909796-2526674359-513) -> Domain Users 
Domain Guests (S-1-5-21-3868592469-3950909796-2526674359-514) -> Domain Guests 
Domain Computers (S-1-5-21-3868592469-3950909796-2526674359-515) -> Domain Computers 
Administrators (S-1-5-32-544) -> Administrators 
Account Operators (S-1-5-32-548) -> Account Operators 
Print Operators (S-1-5-32-550) -> Print Operators 
Backup Operators (S-1-5-32-551) -> Backup Operators 
Replicators (S-1-5-32-552) -> Replicators 

The clients machines has only the local administrator account, nothing else. 
How should i create the Power Users Group and add users to it? 
I need the users only can share folders and printers, but not install software.

Only members of Domain Admins and Power Users can share folders on a 
Windows Domain by default. 
If you think about include an user on one of this groups think about 
privilegies restrictions to other tasks they could do with such
