Aaaaaaagh! So I am confused (no... it doesn't take much)! Are people using Print Management with Deploy via Group Policy or are they using Group Policy Preferences?

In this link, the author states that you need to also change 3 settings in the Computer Configuration, but I am basing this on trying to map Printers per User OU for their year group to apply to their laptop, not on Computer OU based on location...
Can anyone set me straight, I have my week off next week and I'd really like to nail this as I have loads of other stuff planned for when I get back!
Edit: Just to say adding this BUILTIN\Users returns an error for me and GP can't find it when I use Check Names, is this right?
And another edit to say I can't find the 'Point and Print' section in my GP!

For network drives and printers etc. we tend to use http://www.kixtart.org/ for the logon script. Takes abit of configuring but works well for us.

this is what we use
Use something similar to this, just with your server name and files
And then for the Printers
We usually drop this in the startup file, that way no matter what it will map these whenever the computer is turned on.
Hope it helps
