XP Embedded RDP Printing on a 2008 R2 Terminal Server

We are using some old Wyse thinclients to provide remote access to a 2008 R2 terminal server.  The thinclients have XP Embedded on them, and use the windows RDP client to connect to the terminals server.  They have a local installation to a Bizhub C353 printer, which they are able to print to when not connected to the terminal server, but which they are unable to bring into their terminal services session.  The terminal server does not appear to have a problem recognizing the printer when connecting via a full workstation, any assistance in getting the printer working over terminal services on the thin clients is appreciated.  We have already confirmed that the option on the RDP connection are set to include local printers.

Issue resolved, the XP Embedded was not able to use the easy print features of the terminal server, we had to manually install the drivers to the terminal server.
