Peer to Peer Sharing HP Inkjet Printer question

I have a 10 client/server network and want to share a HP 5650 inkjet color printer on the network. The server is running NT 4.0 and all workstations are Win. 2000 pro and one Win. 98. I want to connect the printer to the server and share it. I do not want the DEFAULT PRINTER not be the HP 5650 on any of the systems!! The default printer for the clients are HP 1100's and the Server is networked to Toshiba Copier as Default. I want to know if there will be a problem connecting the clients to the shared HP 5650 over the network and not having it be the DEFAULT PRINTER?

you can have any defined printer be the default. i don't think there is a way to prevent someone from changing the default to something else though.

You have to idenify the printers on your network first on the server. I don't know much about NT, but I am sure you can set different folders access (admin only) in server admin.
