What make and model of printer?
I've not actually used that technique, but using the technique described at http://members.shaw.ca/bsanders/NetPrinterAllUsers.htm, we have found that,
for some printer models, an Administrator has to logon at the workstation
(or remotely via Remote Desktop Connection if the workstation is XP) to
complete the driver installation.
