Create group shares for the printers to be shared. Adding the printer to the pc should be enough from there and just add the users to the group share for their printer. Profiles on the desktop will be created for the users if they change any desktop settings, which isn't necessarily a bad thing (especially for Joe who might not be able to read a size 8 font!). Still, the printer installed on the PC should not be affected by user profiles, the users just need permission to share it. Hope this helps.

EASY!, had this problem once.

1. Log into the machine as local adminitrator (meaning log into the machine, not the domain).
2.Go to the printers folder, connect to the printer, provide a domain admin password when prompted, and thats it.

After a reboot, any user logging into the domain on that box will see the printer you created.

A little registry hacking involved here, but here is one way that works.
