    Yeah there is: and therein lies the difference between all of you and me; I wouldn't dare run anything in case I broke it and couldn't mend it again.
    I've never been the type to try things out, at least not on a live network!

    You are all trying to be so helpful but I'm afraid I still don't quite see how to do this - and I am sure you are all shouting "what on earth...?" as I know you have all explained it as far down to my level as you can get.

    I think the problem is that it is all so scary that I can't focus properly on it.

    I'm not sure I am cut out for this but I need the money so...onwards

    You wont brake anything by running a printer script, either you will install a printer (specified in the script) or you will recieve an error message indicating that there is a problem at a point(line and char space provided).

    Copy the sample script as given earlier into a text file.
    Change the extention to .vbs and save it as printer.vbs.
    Save this file in your own user area.
    Replace the words server and printer with your own networks server and printer names
    Save the updated file.
    Double click on printer.vbs.

    You should now have a printer installed locally. If not check what error messages are shown and see if you can identify what errors caused them(normally it would be spelling). If you get really confused, post the error message and script back on here for people to help you out.

    Once this works manually you can then add it to a logon script for all users.
