Create a new profile with a user that has not logged in before. Set up printer mapping. Then logout, login as Administrator and copy that profile over the Default User profile, so all new users will get the printer mapping! See System control panel for copying profiles.

Try this Technet article, which is called "How to Add a Default Printer for All New Users":
