I have domain admin privaledges and remote access to each print server.  How do I view every print job in order to see whether a reboot of the print server is wise at a particular time?

Just double-clicking a printer on the server will show all jobs currently in its queue.

With Windows 2003 Server release 2 you can install Print Management which can list the jobs for all printers on all servers. See

Forgot to mention: if you view the Printers Control Panel as Details, rather than Icons (select from the View menu), you will see the number of pending documents for each printer.
