Making printers apply to all users

By blache ·
I recently switched most all of our machines from win98 to Win2K. While logged on as administrator, I loaded all needed software and printers. Whenever a new user logs on to one of these Win2k PC's I have to reinstall all needed printers. How can I make a printer install apply to all users?

here is the simple solution.. go to the pc where printer is connected.. create the username what you have assigned for others. make that user as administrator (only in that particular PC till you install your printer in other PC's).Share it. Then go to the workstations, login with that username /password (what u gave other place) and then.. connect to the pc.. start->Run-> just type //Pc_Name . Then u will see only the printers there. double click on it.. or just right click and say connect.. you are done.. now u can go to the main pc and change the administrative rights to normal.. (only one time installation).
