How do I Deploy printers by using Group Policy in Windows Server 2003(not R2)  to Windows XP Clients

We have 4 new HP MFP's. I have to deploy both the print drivers and the send fax drivers to over 160 laptop's and PC's.

I need the process for using Active Directory / Group Policy to deploy the logical printers and their related software to the end users who are all running Windows XP Service Pack 2

You can map network printers through logon scripts.

Use RUNDLL32 commands in a batch script, e.g.
RUNDLL32 PRINTUI.DLL,PrintUIEntry /in /q /n\\server\printer

or a vbscript like the one in this article:

Also, the plural of "laptop" is "laptops".
