Restrict printer settings rights

I have a school based network running a Windows 2000 server with XP sp 2 workstations. Students should only have print rights, but it seems they also get printer settings and preferences. In the GPO settings there doesn't seem to be enough information to turn off these settings. Does Windows 2003 have new admin files that can be added into Windows 2000 with these rights?

The PolicySettings.xls reference from Microsoft (a free download available here) details all Group Policy settings that are available, as well as the OS level that they are supported by. You can also create custom .ADM files to manage settings that are not configurable by GPO out-of-the-box.
