Question setting default printer in Gnome?

Working with a terminal server, trying to get things set for students to use. Have it all built right and all, but I can't Gnome or Ximian or whatever to define a default printer. I use printtool to set things up and it looks great. Can print a test page correctly from the printtool. But when I use Netscape or Abiword or something and try to print, I have to define the printer before it will work (i.e. lpr -Phs_teachers).

Is there a way for programs to pick up a default printer and use it automatically?
