How can I allow users to change the ISP dialup number in Connection Properties?

We have Windows 2000 (and XP) Pro machines and use workgroups (not domains). I want to allow members of the Users...

group to change the dialup number in the Connection Properties. In the default installation, this appears to be prohibited. As staff travel, we want them to call the ISP's local dial-up numbers. How can I let them edit the number to dialup for each dial-up session? Use security templates to change the ACL for that registry subkey. See my other responses about security templates, which is possible one of the best and most under-used deployment tools for locked down environments.
