sharing a printer for all users

By Husam ·
the Printer is HP1220c connected on LPT port and shared for everyone.
Using Activ directory on win 2003 server.
The problem:
printer does not come on automatically on all users profiles. Is there any way (or a script maybe) to make this printer autmatically available for all users.
P.S I can connect manually.

Use a VBS login script to install/connect the printer when the user logs in.
