Slow printing when using print server

I recently installed all printers centrally onto a Windows 2003 server and share out the printers from there.

But after this is done, users encounter slow printing speed. (espacially slow for PDF files)

Before this, all printers are installed locally on all PCs through local TCP/IP ports.

There are around 100 users joined to a domain on Win XP sharing 10 printer. (There is a mixture of HP running on JetDirects and Xerox Copiers)

The server is running a Xeon Quad Core and 4GB ram. Although the server is running as a MS SQL 2000 server, the transaction volume is very low.

Does anyone knows the cause and how to resolve this?

Thank you.
