local printer

All my users are assigned to the "user" priveldge.  I have laptop users that travel and sometimes need to install printers at home or other locations.  I do not want to make them a member of the power user group and certainly do not want to make them administrators.  

In localSecurityPolicy, I enabled; set the allow load and unload drivers.  Apparently this is not enough to allow the installation of the local printers becasue one of my users could not install his printers.

I read some more and saw that in adition to the adjustment in LSP, they have to be a member of the power user group..  I am looking for other alternatives to allow users to install local printers without elevating them inot PU group,

how can this be accomplished.??

I always thought that you had to be a member of at least the power users group to install and manage printers which I presume this is what you want them to do.  If you make them power users for there local machines, and then keep their user status on the domain.  


Is this our only option?  I cant believe there is no way.  I foundly found something that can not be done in windows. .////
