Unauthenticated printing to a windows server 2000 printer share?

We have a wide format printer shared on a standalone Windows 2000 server that we would like to provide to our users without passwords. How do I accomplish this?

Also, I know it's a bad idea from a security standpoint, but until we migrate to AD, it's an annoyance we don't want to deal with.

I enabled the guest user and gave it full rights to the spool share, the shared printer, and all associated shares and folders.

So far it looks like it's accepting unauthenticated requests.

I think when I tried this last I missed the perms on the spool share.

How do I close a question if I solve it myself?
