    I keep getting critical errors in the system events dealing with printer
    drivers not being found. Is it necessary to install drivers on the server?
    There are no locally attached printers on the server just on the clients.

    Probably nothing much to worry about.

    When you connect to a Terminal Server, it tries to create a printer on the
    server, so that the user can print on thier local printer.

    ie, Say you connect to your SBS box from your laptop at home, with an
    attached HP4L printer. TS wll create a printer session, & you can then
    print back to your local printer from within the TS session. This requires
    that an HP4L printer driver be installed on the Terminal server. If a
    driver cannot be found, the error you see will get posted to the event log.

    This is the default behaviour, but it can be turned off at the client end.
    Click "options" "local resources" & clear the "printers" checkbox.
