Remove built in printer drivers in windows 2k pro

Is there an easy way to clear out the existing printer drivers available in windows 2000.  I do not mean the ones that are currently installed, but when you add a new printer and all the manufacturers are presented to choose from, that list.  I wish to cull out the ones that our users do not need.

In

%SystemRoot%\inf

remove "ntprint.inf" and "ntprint.pnf" to a backup location. These files contain a list of all the printers that Windows natively supports.

There will be other manufactuer-specific and technology-specific INF files remaining that list some pther printers but this file is the *big* list.
