"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This document will give you the general idea of what needs to be done. Basically what you will want to do is add the print server role install all of your printers and then enable internet printing. Internet printing allows your users and admins to access a webpage and see the printers, install printers, manage jobs (if they have rights), etc.
