I am replacing a Windows 2000 Server w/ a Windows Server 2003 box. Both pc's are stand-a-lone servers on a network with a PDC Windows Server 2003. The Windows 2000 Server has (15) network printers as part of a customized accounting system. Do I manually install all the printers or is there a migration tool that will help me get all the printers installed exactly like the old Windows 2000 box?

Have you had a look at the Printer Migration tool?

That should be able to help with it all.
