Moving shared printers from one server to a new one

I have a Windows Server 2003 that has 20 or so printer shares.  We need to move this to another server, that will end up with the same server name.  Normally, we just move the data with Robocopy, and create the shares with the same name, down the old server, rename the new, and voila, done.  But, I forgot about the 20+ printers on the server that are shared out.  

Is there an easy way to migrate these over?

P.S:I need to change the server name (e.g: windows 2003 server name: old-print, windows 2008 server name New-Print)
