I would need to log usage of our rinters. I do not need a quota system, i just need to know which uses prints how much, and if it is a color document or not. All printers are ethernet connected, with queues on a Active Directory W2k-server.

Preferably a cheap solution :)

For 'free' - you can try out printer auditing under W2k...

Although, it doesn't give you as much info as you might get from a 3rd party tool..
