Install network printer without admin rights

Specs: Windows 7 pro, 2G
We have a Windows 2003 server with client XP and Windows 7, all our printers are installed on the server and a login script installed the printers to our client when they login.
It's working fine with XP pro and now we have Windows 7, a pop-up appears saying the driver need to be downloaded from the server and only proceed if you trust the server. Since the users have only power user rights they can't install it. I have lowered the users account settings to low already.

I search and came across some suggestion such as:

http://social.technet.microsoft.com...

http://social.technet.microsoft.com...

saying I need to set the GPO to enable point and print restriction which I can't even find under the computer configuration settings. Maybe they were referring to Windows 2008 server.

I have called Xerox also about it and they said because there drivers have not been certified by Microsoft yet so that is why it pops up with this message.

I did managed to get around it by installing the driver on the local machine using admin rights and then delete it and the script will install without any prompt, but we have hundreds of machines, anybody can help me with this, much appreciated.

I just want to install the driver on Windows 7 machine using a script.

you might get more answers in the server section.
or you push the installation to all machines as an auto update, it should install automatically when each user starts the machine.
