Pushing load balanced printers to workstations

We have set up 2 printers to load balance through a traditional queue. Is there a way to push the printer (queue) to workstations?

Thanks!!

You can do so with older versions of ZENworks. However maybe there are
better ways to do what you are trying to do.
What NetWare version are you on? You should be aware that with NetWare 6.5
load balancing is a feature already built into NDPS/iPrint and you don't
need print queues to implement it.
For older NetWare versions, you can still avoid accessing a queue from
your client workstations be creating an additional NDPS/iPrint printer
that sends all its jobs to the print queue you are using for load balancing.
