I need to check the compatibility (or lack thereof) of my network printers before upgrading to Windows Server 2008.  Does anyone know if MS has a list of compatible printers out there? I have not been able to locate one yet.

This is the printers section of the Windows Server 2008 Hardware Compatibility List - you can check your printer here:

Thanks!  That did the trick, though I am also going one by one to the manufacturers' sites to see if they have drivers.  It seems that a lot of printers that are not on the HCL have manufacturer-provided drivers for 2008.  Thanks for the help!
