Is it possible to let domain users install printers and their drivers without admin authorization?

I just rolled out a win7 migration and I'm going to each machine now and setting up personalized settings, printers, etc...

On the old XP infrastructure users could install network printers without any problem or needing to have admin rights.  Is there  GPO or something similar I could use to set this?

Install domain printer is permitted as long they are shared and users have permission on it.

In print server you must have print drivers for Windows 7 installed too.

Ahh I bet this is the problem. I haven't specifically installed win7 drivers. If I change the driver on the server will it trickle down to the workstations that already have the printer installed?

Thank you!
