How can i add redundancy to a windows 2003 printer server

i have a windows 2003 server acting as a print server. It is running standard sp2
i have around 80 printers on this and would really need some sort of redundancy.
I have a another server which i have backed up all these printers to using microsoft print migrator.
How can i setup redundancy that when one print server fails the other one takes over.
Can i use some sort of dns entry.
I mostly use scripts to assign printers to users.
I have read a little into print clustering but it needs microsoft windows 2003 enterprise.
is this the only real soloution to printer redundancy or is their anything else i could use

Hi

Here's a couple of solutions I found just looking here at EE.  One of them follows your thinking of modifying DNS.

There are probably more elegant ones, but these follow economic and simplicity concerns.

Check 'em out.  Also, there are many other solutions right here.
