I added a network printer to a users XP client using runas using the manufacturers installer (EXE)

However I can'f find a way to rename it?  When I click rename (using the users credentials) and change it- it won't let me save it (Accesss Denied).   The default name is the make / model of the printer but I need to change it to something more meaningful.  How can I do that?  Is there a way to do that in the registry, anywhere?

in a command prompt  use "runas /user:administrator "control printers"
Enter the password
this will open the printer panel
Open your printer and rename it
