Terminal server/remote access printing

here is a brief description of the users netowrk:

they currently have an office with 1 windows server 2008 box (new) 3 pc's, 2 of which are xp pro(joined to domain) and 1 is a windows 7 home (workgroup). all PC's AND server have a printer attached via USB.

they access their server out of hours via remote desktop to the server IP (bad practise i know!) and on the old server (server 2003 box, now decomissioned) they were able to print to all printers in the office, now they cannot.

what do i need to do to get them printing to all printers in the office again? i was thinking i could add them all as share printers and then add them to the users session so they are saved for next time.

please note that no physical changes can be made.

thanks in advance

yes you will need to add them back in to the new session on the new terminal server.  i use sysvol/scripts and have login scripts that map printers etc when they login.
