We have a printer shared on a windows 2000pro machine, We want to add it to our
existing Internet Printing Server.

 I have installed the printer on the 2003 server, and re-shared the printer from there.
 but it will not share. It keeps the settings but will never show as shared.

 Is it possible to "double share" a printer.

"Double sharing" is not possible.
If you want to share it from your server you have to physically connect the printer to your server or you purchase a Network Print Server like HP JetDirect, connect your printer to it and then share it from server.

hope this helps
