    You can setup this printer on a print server (or workstation if it must) and setup a color and b/w print queues. Then share out these queues. When someone prints they can select either one and it prints to the same printer either in color or b/w.

    Here is a really good article that should help with most of it,

    As for two queues on one printer, you have to create another printer share pointed at the same IP of your printer. Then just change the print queue settings to print in B/W.
