Enabling the printer redirection by user on the server is a must.  But you also need to have the remote users local printer drivers installed on the 2003 terminal server.  The drivers should be for the operating system that the remote user has installed on their remote computer.

When the user remotely logs into the server they need to add a new printer using a valid Terminal services port (example: TS00001). Have them choose "Add a local printer"  but make sure they select an enabled Terminal Services port that shows as "active".  As long as the proper drivers are installed on the server it should work.
