Log as an admin of the workstation, not the domain.
Or add a domain user to the admin group on the workstation.

Subject: Tech Question, Local restrictions with a Domain login
I have enherited a school that is using a Windows NT4 server as their
domain controller (yes, sharpen your memory for this one!). Whenever a
user logs into the domain they are restricted from installing programs
their local computer. Only Administrators can install software locally
when logged into the domain.
There are NO POLICIES on this domain, not a single *.pol file anywhere
the server (much less in the netshare).
I would like to create a group of users who are able to install programs
locally without giving them access to any network resources that they
normally wouldn't have access to.
Where is this restriction???? I've searched and searched for some
that would restrict the ability to install progrms locally that is
from the directory. At one point I guessed it was a default profile on
the workstation, but I've done a fresh install with no restrictions on
default profile. As soon as I add the computer to the domain and log in
as a domain user who isn't in the Administrator group - do not pass go,
not install software locally!
Thanks in advance for any hints as to where to look next.
