Ok hope Im in the right place!

I have a WSUS server separate from my DC server. WSUS server is Win server 2003 x32 and DC is win 2003 x64

My issue is my admin wants me to let the administrators to be able to bypass WSUS and update from windows update website on user computers in the domain. At this point as far as I can tell due to the computer settings in GP on my WSUS Group it will not allow anyone to access windows update website. I need to be able to allow my computers to update even if the user has logged off. The issue I had found was if I did not include the domain computers to the WSUS GP they would not talk with the WSUS server. My tree is as follows;
For Administrators
Main- Users Administrators user account
For computers
Main- WSUS Group- Location- T3400- Computer account

I have two GPOs made up. One for the computers and one for Administrators that has opposite settings compared to the WSUS GPO. How do I configure and place GPOs to obtain my goal.
