Sounds like there may be some group policies in place that are setup to run logon scripts to map printers. But this is a guess since I don't know anything about what has been done in the past.

On a workstation that is getting the printer automatically, run gpresult.exe from a command prompt and this will show you if there are any group policies being applied.

For the user who has the printer automatically:

What happens when you delete the printer in (control panel- printers) and the user logs out and back in?  Does the printer re-appear?

i tried that and it did not come back. the printers say auto infront of it. I really need this to work everywhere how doi I do this. Thank you for you help. They login to a netware 6.5 server, and have connections to the windows 2003 server with active directory. and this is where teh printers are shared from

Hmmmm....I know absolutely nothing about netware so I'm not sure how this environment would work.

This is how I've accomplished what you want...but I don't know how you would do this in your situation.

I run a pure windows server environment where my users login to the domain
I use group policy to run a logon script that maps printers for my users so that they have the correct printer added when the login
