I am not sure if the Administrators group is required on the PDC-  any 
way it would be a group specific to the PDC.

Making domain users members of the "Domain Administrators" group should 
have worked.   When an XP machine joins the domain , the "Domain Users" 
group should be added automatically the the local Administrators group 
on that PC-  and by extension those users will have local admin rights.

If you log into the PC as the domain Administrator, can you write into 
C:\Windows?  Can you even create a local user account?   This would 
verify that the domain Administrator really had local administrator 
rights.  I had one issue after upgrading one of my domain controllers 
where the group mapping wasn't working properly-  so on the Windows 
systems using that DC,  any permissions assigned to Domain Admins or 
Domain Users was didn't work since the users weren't seen in the groups.
