SBS 2003

I am having problems with SBS 2003, printer sharing, I have the printers shared and installed on all the client PC's XP pro, the printers are installed and working but, I want to have the default settings set on the server, and then carryied accross to the PC, for default trays, colur ect, but it wont do it, if I change the settings manualy on the PC's it sorts the problem, but the server should do it, any ideas?

If the printers are attached to an XP client, then the xp client is your "print server" for that printer...not your SBS.

The server is the print server, as the printers are all TCP IP printers, and shared and installed on the server, and on SBS 2003 it automatically pulls the printers on to the PC. when it doesn this, it should use the settings from the server, but it doesnt and installs it with differnet default settings set. ie in colour ect, that I dont want, & I really dont want to go round all 50 PC's and chaneg it on them
