a simplet WSH script can add a shared printer, in a loginscript for example.

Set WshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\PrintServer1\Xerox300"
WshNetwork.SetDefaultPrinter "\\PrintServer1\Xerox300"

Depending on how many computers you need to add the printer to it may be easier to do them individually.  However if you want a script to install the printer you can find details here:

Basically you will need to download the INF drivers and create a batch script that utilizes cscript to install the printer for you.  It's a bit of work for a few computers, but if you're using a system where you can push updates or would rather walk around with a thumb drive ( or have a lackie do it for you :-) ), then this might be the solution for you.
Dear Julian

Can you please give me a Sample script for printer installation on network so i can edit it and deploy it through Log-on script
