I've been tasked with setting up a print server for users in a remote location. The client requested a quote for a print cluster. Currently there are about 100 users who'll be utilizing 20 printers. Eventually printers will increase to 40. I'm thinking a print cluster would be overkill but I thought I'd put the question out there because this is not a normal task that I do everyday. Also important, how much disk space would be ideal and would you recommend it be on a SAN or local?  Thanks very much.
