Configuring a Two-Node Print Server Failover Cluster

I have 2 identical Windows 2008 R2 EE servers. I would like to to make a print cluster. Can this be done using only the phyical drives on each server or would I need a separate shared storage location?

Thanks.

In order to create a Windows 2008 R2 failover cluster for printing, you need SHARED Storage.  This can not be accomplished using on the physical drives on each server.

Storage: You must use shared storage that is compatible with Windows Server 2008.
