Roaming Printers/Profiles

By perception ·
How do we get a users/clients network printers, (Windows 2000), to "roam" along with their ROMAING Profiles? We've established "ROAMING" Profiles for some of our users but their printers do not follow them. Can you help?

Modify login script for these users with a net use command for the printers. Printers need to be shared on the server, keep name short and simple, within 8 characters. And have additional drivers on the server installed for these printers when your roaming users roam via WIn98 to WinXP.
Once they logon, their host PC will install printer drivers for the printers.
