When you add a network printer in Windows 2000, is the printer information saved to a file on the hard drive, so that it can be viewed, and you can see what printers the end user had installed?
Wondering if I can tell from a Ghost image, what printers are installed on the machine.
Thanks.

They are saved to a file, but this file is part of the registry, specifically %WINNT%system32\config\software

You can see which printers in the registry under this key
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers
