Load balance or failover 2003 print servers


I am looking for instructions to either load balance or create a failover for 2003 print servers.  I am looking for a solution in the event one print server fails the second will pick up the work load.  

Thank you in advance.

You need to create a print resource and use it in a cluster. I see in your question that its a 2k3/Standard server. To setup a cluster you need to use either Enterprise or data center edn.If you already have a standalone print server, yiu don't need to create the print queues from scratch. once the cluster is setup you can migrate them. Let me know if you need more information on this.
