How do I add a printer to a Win2k workstation so both new and existing users can access it?

How do I add a printer to a Windows 2000 workstation so that all users will be able to access the printer? Currently we use the "copy profile to default" method, but what can I do for a PC with already existing users? Installing the printer via logon is not an option either; there are not enough "standards" in our environment.
