Printers for unprivileged users


Hello all,

Is there anyway to add printers for users automatically and without giving them root access? The reason that I am asking is that I have 178 users that need access to printers and I don't want to have to do that manually. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanx in advance!
