Q

Can power users install printers on Win2k units?

How do I give my users with power user rights the ability to install printers on their Windows 2000 units? I do not want to give admin rights to users. Are there any other possibilities? Thanks.
Deploy the printer drivers with Windows 2000 so that the operating system will automatically detect and install the printer. Windows 2000 doesn't require the user to be an administrator to install Plug and Play printers if the printer drive is already installed on the PC.
