Remote Desktop printing

I have been told to install and print to your own printer using remote desktop on a 2000 Windows Server running Terminal Services the printer driver must be installed on the Server.

I need more info

Eg
 I have a Canon LBP810 that plugs directly into my Notebooks Usb Port
When I install it onto the Server which port do use as there is no usb port in the list
LVL 1

Just install it using an LPT port - when you connect to the server the remote desktop application will map it to the correct port for you.  The driver merely needs to be installed on the server (any port).
