I setup a printer in the high school library that the librarian only wants library users to be able to print to.  So, I created a security group and added the high school library computer names as members to that group. On the HS server I installed the drivers for this network printer, shared it, and on the security tab I added the security group.  When I login to a computer in the library as administrator, I can added the printer, but when a student logs in, he cannot setup the same printer, it asks for a username and password for the HS server.  However, it WILL work if I add the "Everyone" group to the Security tab for the printer properties, but that defeats the purpose of allowing only library users to print to that printer.  What am I doing wrong?  ARRRRGGG

This is a Windows 2003 server environment.
