Kickstart installations and printer pre-configuration in Fedora 13

In my department, we have a lot of Linux (CentOS and Fedora) workstations. I set them up using Red Hat's kickstart method. With CentOS and earlier versions of Fedora, my kickstart post-install script used a bunch of lpadmin commands to preconfigure the printer queues for my users. With Fedora 13's new "automated" printer setup system, my lpadmin commands no longer work. I believe it's because the printer drivers are not installed by default, so the lpadmin commands fail due to missing drivers.
I was wondering if someone could describe the correct way of preconfiguring network printer queues via a script. I don't want my users to have to set up their own printers. Thanks in advance for your help.
