Restricted Groups Feature is really great.

I had question in my mind "Is it possible to create a Local administration user account on a Workstation via Group Policies in Server 2003? If yes, how do you do it?” When I searched for it I found really nice knowledge base article explaining the entire procedure to achieve that.

Restricted Groups under[Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Restricted Groups]is a feature of the Group Policy which allows you to set up policies which ensure consistent membership in certain groups, such as Administrators, Power Users etc. For example, you can configure the GPO to include a certain domain group into Administrators group on all computers affected by this GPO

The benefit of using restricted groups is that it acts as any other policy set up by GP: if the membership of any group configured as a restricted is broken (someone has manually removed groups and users added to Administrators, for example), it will be automatically restored at the next policy refresh.

Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - 320065

Although the article says that
"The information in this article applies to:"
Microsoft Windows 2000 Server
Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server
Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional

I have personally checked it on my Windows Server 2003 Ent. Edition and it works well.
