I was looking through my event logs in my windows server and see a bunch of (type) error (event) 1111, it shows a bunch of our printers saying that the print drivers are unknown.  Do I need to load all of the printers that we have in our organization into our windows server?  I don't usually do that I just plug the printer into the LAN and give it an IP.

Don't you use print server in your environment?

These events are logged when you remotely connect to a server with RDP and have printer mapping enabled.
If you don't have the need to print through RDP on the printers that are logged, you can safely ignore these errors. You can disable the printer mapping as well from server side (through the Terminal Services Configuration MMC, properties of the RDP protocol) or through the settings in the RDP client (if disabled on the server, the client settings don't matter, there won't be printer mapping).
Unless you really, really, need to print to a local printer from an RDp session, you shouldn't install printer drivers on the server.
