What are the symptoms that you need administrator privileges? The default
security scheme, even with the SP2 behemoth installed, require an
administrator or power user to install the printer, but a user can print to
it. Is this just a postfix or pdl printer installed with a local tcp/ip
port or are you connecting to a shared network printer off a samba machine?
Is the sky really blue and will I get flamed for replying to a windows
question? Only time will tell....
