I have a client that has a Limited account in XP Pro. I want to elevate her permissions to allow her to have total control over the print queue. Her PC acts as a Print Server. I am assuming that I would make the changes through group policy. Can you tell me what to change? Also can you recommend a good book or publication on Group Policy?

For your printing, you are going to have to bump op her rights and give her power users (as has print groups but i am guessing this is locally)

How do you customize the account type? Unlike Server 2003, the permissions are set on a GUI which allows you to choose between Administrator and Limited. Is their another area where I can add user account customization?

I should mention that this is in a Workgroup, not a domain

I'll give it a try. They don't have the capital or need for a domain. And relax, This is Pro.
