You can use the following information http://support.microsoft.com/kb/278455/en-us if you plan to use Windows clustering capabilities. Else i don't know the others products.

Are you talking about just sharing a printer on a cluster application endpoint (an ip/network name), or are you talking about clustering a print server (as Tasmant mentions)?

If you're looking to share a printer, you can use this Microsoft walkthrough (for Windows Server 2003):
