I have users running XP. I have multiple printers. I have created a group policy that is supposed to redirect users to just a few specific printers. I have add read and apply but it does not happen. I also would like to make it so this group policy does not show all the printers in the domain, but just the ones I want. This is windows 2000, Can someone please help.

    The best way to do this would be to create logon scripts to map the specific printers to the correct users.
