script network printer

i put this in a bat file and it works to install my printer. I have a couple of questions though.

rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /in /n "\\WIN-A8RE4F9F5RA\Dell 3130CN - 1"
rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /in /n "\\WIN-A8RE4F9F5RA\Dell 3130CN -  2"
rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /in /n "\\WIN-A8RE4F9F5RA\Dell 3130CN - 3"

assuming most users already have the printer installed and I setup a new logon script that pushes this out when they logon. Assuming new hires have no problems but what happens to users that already have it installed? will there be some sort of conflict or error?

and how do i make printer #2 the DEFAULT - what's the code to do that?

server is : Windows 2008 R2 - Domain controller

To make the printer default use the parameter /y
if you want to make sure everything is fine even in old machines. you can use the delete printer first which will delete existing and then create as per your script.

below is good link to see the command line parameters.
