Test this command from a "DOS box":

    rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /in /n \\printerserver\printersharename

If it works, it can go into the logon script. (Of course "printersharename"
needs to exist on "printerserver" and must have printer driver deposited on
the server's [print$]-share for "point'n'print" download...). And:

    rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntriy /?

will show up a full "man page" (hehe...)
