TS 2003 and client based USB printers

I had a problem installing client based USB locally connected printers onto a Terminal Server, especially the HP All in one printers.
You can have issues with the install on a server, it can kick off DEP, not install or some other idiotic issue.

To get around this I do the following; 
Start the installer.
Find the temp file location and copy out all the drivers from the temp folder to a known location.
Stop the install and then use the copied out folder for the install of the printer onto the Terminal Server.

Bingo - all sorted.
