Remote Desktop Printing Issues

We are running a 2008 R2 Remote Desktop server that is new into production.
We are having trouble getting the remote desktop printing working cleanly.

For example a local machine that only has two printers connects to the rd server and sees about 20 re-directed printers but only one of the printers on his local machine. Ideally we'd like for users to log into the server and only see the printers on their local machines and not all 10 other users' printers.

We also can't seem to delete any of the re-directed printers from anyone's sessions. I know this has to be a simple fix but I can't seem to figure it out.

Our local clients use a mix of XP and Windows 7.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, I have looked at that document but wasn't able to get too far.
Is it normal to have everyone's printer re-direction show up for each user?
Meaning even though there are only 2 printers on the local machine he sees 20 re-directed printers when he logs on to the RD server?
