I have solved this issue for my users with a Startmenu three. Containing =
shortcuts to Con2Prn.exe with a parameter defining the printer.
Each time a pringer is added, or removed, i just update the shortcuts.

Now all users connect to printerts trough the startmenu, and a defined =
three.

This reduced my support calls regarding printers by a lot.

Subject: [THIN] printer management

We have 300 network printers and 3 XPa Farm servers. We will soon be
migrating these printers to queues on Windows servers from Novell. We
want to try and keep the users from having to scroll through a list of
printers to get to the one(s) they wish to print to. Does anyone know of
a way to partition them out? Do any of the 3rd party print management
solutions help with this? Do any of them handle security? Do any of them
propagate to other farm servers for you?

Thanks for the insight.
