Xerox printers has some config file that gets updates when adding a printer
that uses the same driver forcing all the clients into Driver Update Needed
state since one file used by multiple printers by even more multiple clients
is now newer on the server.
The Vista Point and Print Restrictions setting are viewable on a Vista
machine. I don't know how to load the Vista GPO settings other than to edit
the GPO using Server 2008.
I'm sure someone on a group policy newsgroup would have a better answer to
accomplish this using Server 2003
