What level are your clients (restricted users,power users,...), do they have rights to add printer?Do you have xp or win 7,or something else?

If your clients are Win XP and win 7 than no, but it should still let your clients to be able to print via that printer
You will need to manualy add printer. And also change print driver on terminal services servers and add support for additional drivers for Win 7 and vista via your print managemant
