Its been a while, but I need to revisit this.  I have set this up as you 
recommended, but now I'm having some strange problems.  Whenever I turn on one 
of the machines that this is set up on I get a complete print out of everything 
that was printed the day before.  The queue is not purging itself so to speak.  
Is there a setting I'm missing?

Only local printers will show for all users.
But you can make network printers pseudo-local:
In the add printer wizard, choose "Local Printer (Do not detect)" and when 
asked for a port, choose "New Local Port"
When prompted for the local port name, put the UNC of the network printer queue.
Hope this helps,

I have a question in regard to individual users and printers.  I'm sure this is 
by design, but when I install a printer, it only appears for the user who is 
logged in at the time.  Next user, install printer.....next user - install 
What do I have to do to install a printer and have it appear for ALL the users 
of that perticular machine.  Some pc's will have 10 different users per day.
