SBS shared printer problem

I have a client that uses SBS 2003. They have one shared printer that all people use. Every person has an AD account, but no one logs on to the network. When I try to add the printer through Add Printers, the Domain shows up but I can't expand it to see the printer. I have to map a drive to the server, authenticate to it. Then I can add the printer.

After a reboot, the printer is not avaulable unless I remap and authenticate again. Is there a way to simplify this?

You should add ther user's network logon information to the user profile. Go the the control panel and open User Account. From there select the user. At the top left you should see 'Manage my network passwords'. Add the logon information there and that should solve your problem.
Good luck.
