Upgrading Printers...what't the best way to globally change drivers?

Hi All,

We currently have a deployment of HP laserjet 5M printers that are being
retired and replaced with HP Laserjet 4250s.
I've seen various tools for scripting printer installs (PRNADMIN.DLL,
printui.dll, prnmngr.vbs, etc), but would like some advice on the best way
to do this.

We have a 2003 AD domain, running XP on the desktops for approximately 800
users (the reason I'm looking for an automated way of doing this).

The printer queues are running on a Samba server, and we are not planning on
changing the queue names. Is it possible to somehow script a driver
replacement?

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers,
Mark
