Using group policies for printers for different groups in Windows 2008 TS?

Hi Peeps

I'm about to create a new Terminal Services system using Windows 2008. People from outside of our head office remote in and use it and they're all in different locations. When they print, I only want the set of printers that have been allocated to them to be seen in their printers list unlike the system we have now, whereby a user logs on and can see the entire list of printers available on TS. So I basically want user A, when they log on, to ONLY see printers allocated to user A.

How can I do this with group policies?

Thanks
Y

To install printers to groups of users or computers by using Group Policy

2.In the Print Management tree, under the appropriate print server, click Printers.
3.In the results pane, right-click the printer you want to deploy, and then click Deploy with Group Policy.
4.In the Deploy with Group Policy dialog box, click Browse, and then choose a Group Policy object.
5.Click OK.
6.To assign the printer connection setting to the GPO, do one or both of the following:
As a per-user setting, select the The users that this GPO applies to (per user) check box.
As a per-machine setting, select the The computers that this GPO applies to (per machine) check box.
7.Click Add.
8.Repeat steps 3 to 6 to add the printer connection setting to another GPO.
9.Click OK.
