I've tried adding the scripts in the 'Startup' and 'Logon'. I've tried what 'Gerry' suggested.
    what I've done for now since I have folder redirect is I created a 'printer' folder in the labs Start/Programs and added the printer's shortcut in that folder. Once the user logs on they double click the printer and it installs it into the 'Printers and Faxes'. I would still like to know why a simple task like mapping printers seems so complicated
    as i suggested use the startup script to copy a shorcut to the printer script to c:\documetns and settings\all users\start menu\programs\startup that way every logon it runs it from the server

    @techie211: Sorry for not replying sooner.

    The group policy is added to the Computer Configuration. Here it can take up to a few hours for the policy to become active, and as I mentioned our desktops won't install the drivers unless we log-in with an admin account first (we haven't figured out why yet-hoping Server 2008 will sort it out when we switch...)

    For the odd staff PC that isn't a member of the room's group in Active Directory, we add a shortcut to the script in All Users->Startup.
