Turn an Intel Mac Mini into a print server

I'm wanting to turn an intel based mac mini running OS X into an IP based print server that can support 2 different usb attached printers.

Can this be done?

Yes it can be done pretty easily.  First make sure that your printer is compatible with Mac OS X (check with your printer manufacturer).  Read the printer sharing information here http://members.cox.net/18james/osx_printer_sharing.html.

Of course, your Mac mini must be on and not sleeping for the printer to be available to others.
