What rights should be assigned to allow software manipulation?

What rights should be assigned to users on a Windows 2000 Pro machine to allow for manipulation of installed software (such as Outlook 2000 profiles), but to not be able to install new software? I haven't been able to figure it out without giving everyone Admin rights.

That depends on what manipulations you want them to do. Try putting the users into the Power Users group. They should be able to 'manipulate' applications then. You can also use the restricted applications feature in Windows XP to get more control over application installation.
