We need to print our printer information from our Server 2003 print server.  We are not interested in page counts or any stats like that.  All we need is printer name, model, location, and description.  Does anyone have any recomendations for software to use?  A freebie would be nice.

Two free tools that may give you the info you want are Belarc and SIW (System Information for Windows).
They don't seem to give location and description though.

Another tool that may be over the top is Spiceworks.  It will acutally find your printers on the network at give you details about each which you can then make a report of.  

I will keep looking for a simple tool that fits more to what you are looking for though.

Popescan is a tool that will scan your network and return information on what is connecting.  IE. printers.
