Limited User Access

Hey All,

I'm a shell provider, and recently expanded quite rapidly, so i took on a few people to help me run it.

To the point, i want to be able to give a user access to use the "useradd" command, and the "passwd" command, to setup new user accounts. that's all i want to be done, is this possible? Obviously i don't want to give root login to some guy i've only known for a few weeks just yet
