Linux server and Windows client permissions

I have a Linux Server (RH9) and have my windows 2000 PC logging into the linux domain.

How do I change the permissions for a user to give them access to change IP settings or the time. Currently my windows 2000 PC when logged into the linux domain wont let me change IP settings.

try this in smb.conf:

"domain admin users = root"

then login to your windows client (on the domain) as root.
