I have 30 xp pro machines with 2 shared printers. How
can I set up new machines so all users see both printers
upon login. Currently I have to add the printers for
each user. (A real pain!)

Thanks

Along with Hal's pointer, remember that XP Pro is limited to 10 simultaneous
connections. The 11th PC that wants to connect to the printer will get a
Connections Maxed Out message. The ONLY answer for this is to upgrade one
of the PC's to either the Windows 2004 Small Business Server which supports
75 simultaneous connections or to a FULL version of the Windows 2003 Server
family which support unlimited connections.
