Is it possible to change the permissions in OS X so that a limited user can change the boot drive so that they can boot into Boot Camp. This isn't an issue in Windows XP as the Boot Camp utility works for a regular Windows user.

I specifically don't want the user to hold down the Alt key as this requires them knowing the firmware password.

This may do what you're after.
