I'm not positive, but I think if you used Dynamic Local Users
(Accounts?) you might get what you want with print jobs.  This may
require modifying your novell/xp config beyond acceptable limits for
your situation though.  (eg: it may break other things that are working
correctly for you).

Just a thought.
