Allow non-admins to install software?

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

I find it rather tedious to have to type my password every time others want to install something on the computer (which is a shared computer, by the way). Is there any way to allow a non-admin user to install software, but not have other admin priveleges?

On the screen where you're prompted for the password, find and note down the requested right. Use a program such as TextWrangler to edit the /private/etc/authorization file so that all accounts have that right.
