Anyone out their know how to give font istall rights without making the user
a local admin. The user needs to install or modify fonts since he is
developing a font system for his language class. We use a domain system here
so I could send down a group policy change if needed.

Basic work around.
I was able to set the folder permissiosn to the user. This gaves him the
abilty to install fonts and delete fonts he has installed. Any font installed
by another user he cannot delete. This seems to have resolved the task he
needed to do. Without compromising the whole system.
