Windows 7: Shared computers and setting up default printers question

Shared computers and setting up default printers question

Could not find anything in search, so point me in right direction if it exists. Basically, have a network running through several buildings, 7 to be exact. They all have network printers in, at least one per building, and 2-3 workstations that are shared. People might be required to log into any computer in any building to perform their duties. What i am wanting to do is have the shared computer automatically connect/install the printer in that building by default. Running Win 7 64bit inside a Novell/AD setup. Anyone have any thoughts? Or is this just not possible?
