Problems adding printers via a script.

I'm trying to write a script which will add a number of printers to new systems.  I've generated a very simple script which runs lpadmin in a loop, each loop adding one printer to the system.

When the commands are run manually everything works OK, but as soon as I put them into the loop, a random selection of lpadmin adds fail with random errors.

I added a "sleep 10" in to the loop and everything works fine, but very slowly (I'm adding 100 printers).

Is there a better way of adding pritners to a system than using lpadmin?
