Users need access to which folders in order to use print server

Hello experts,

I have been trying to get a print server to work a while now, on a Win 2003 network.  For some reason, none of the users could print.  I have *i believe* figured it out, thanks to some more surfing and browsing of this site.  Users need access to some folders within the systemroot.  However the only solution I could find mentioned giving the users access to the entire directory...I'd rather not do that.  I cannot find which folders they need access to.  Any help?  Am I just missing something?  Thanks!

Have you tried just giving them the Read | Read and Execute permissions?  That way they cannot modify any of the necessary files...  just a thought..

Or.. put them into the Power Users group?

Adding the printers as a local pritner via a standard TCP/IP port took care of the problem.  Yay!
