I work for someone who has a need for automating the print installation of LPR print port to mac laptops. Obviously this will need to cover anything OS X 10.3 and above. All of this needs to be done command line via a batch file of sorts.

I am a windows and Linux guy, however I just bought a Mac and starting to like the new Leopard OS and the capabilities of boot camp.

What I need:
1) how to install LPR port to the laptop
2) installing a printer from a some sort of cab file with correct port and drivers. (in windows we use print migrator, however the cab files we use for windows will obviously not work with different port types and drivers)
3) finally some clean up type script that will clean up any temp files I had to create or such.

I kind of need this soon so if anyone knows how or could point me in the right direction. It would be greatly appreciated.
