Can you USB "repeaters" to extend beyond the 3m USB spec?

I have about 60 feet of separation between a HP7410 printer and  three PCs.  After countless hours trying to get the 7410 to function on a network (wireless or wired Ethernet), I have resorted (for one PC) to using a USB connection.

I am considering using an A/B/C USB switch to toggle the printer between the three PCs (very little printing demand).  Can a USB function over 60 feet?  Or should I just buy a printer that will function on a network.    Thanks!

Yes they make extenders for USB. http://www.bb-elec.com/product_family.asp?FamilyId=148
I would still go with a network printer though, but that's just me. :)
