is there a way to disable printer access only on certain admin accounts or

Disallow "everyone" print permissions on the security tab of the printer's
properties. How you access the security tab differs depending on which
version of WinXP you have. In Pro, you need to disable simple file sharing
in the control panel/folder options/view tab. In Home, you must restart in
Safe mode and logon as administrator.
