You can easily delete printers from the Printers Applet under Files/Server
Properties Drivers Tab.

 Interesting concept, that will actually work as I am loading a new server
for VMware testing.  Have you done this before?

Which print registry key in particular?

Build a new PS 4 server (this server will have a clean spooler that will
be copied).

On the current server, stop the spooler, delete the Spool folder, delete
the Print registry key.

Copy the Spool folder and Print registry key from the new PS 4 server.
Start the spooler.

What's the recommended way to delete all installed printers on Windows
2003?  I want to remove every drive that has been installed except for the
ones that Citrix PS4.0 installs, bringing the print subsystem back to it's
original state after install of W2K3+ PS4
