You can do this with Restricted Groups policy. Normally people think of
it as only able to mirror the membership listed (I was one of them), but
you can actually use it to "add" a member without removing any of the
existing ones.


Other options would be to use a computer startup script, or the GPP
extensions. GPP doesn't REQUIRE 2008 Server to work;  you just have to
have it or Vista SP1 (with RSAT pack) from which to create/edit GPOs
utilizing those extensions.

Subject: [gptalk] Adding an account to a local group


I would like to add an account to the local administrators group on an
OU. I've been browsing through Computer Configuration options and I
don't see anything promising. Does anyone one have a suggestion? 


No, I do not have the ability to use server 2008 options. J
