How can I monitor who is printing on a printer?

I am running a Windows 2000 domain, consisting of NT, 2000, and xp workstations. We have several network printers and I was wondering if there is a way to log who prints how many pages? Does Windows have some sort of log? Is there any freeware or inexpensive software that does this?

Assuming you have your printers served by a print server, look in the Application log.  It records this information.
Print Logger 2.4.1 - Know what documents you print, when and where you print them.
This tool records each completed print job in a special log file. The log file can be viewed,
sorted, and imported into your favorite spreadsheet or word processor.

Best of all - it's absolutely free - freeware!!!!!
