Sorry, I had to reconfig a few things to get back to this setup...

It is in the AD Users and Computers MMC, but when you right click, do
"new->printer".  It will ask you for the UNC path (i.e.
\\server\printername).  It should take it from there.

The object will be placed in the container where  you right-click.
