Is there a way to migrate XP network printer settings and drivers from one machine to another?

I've been struggling with this issue for a while. I think the problem is because the printers are not located on a server, so I have to connect to them through a local TCP/IP port.

This is a pain, because I have 500 PCs that are being replaced, and I have to manually connect at least five printers to each PC individually. This is really slowing down the process.

I tried using the File and Settings Transfer Wizard, but nothing gets moved over.

I also considered USMT, but the documention I've found on the web only refers to XP to Win7 migrations.

Please advise on any scripts, utilities, etc. that I can run to help make this task a lot easier and faster.

Thanks for your replies...
