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):

My "Need more info", what do you mean? Are our answers on the right track? Not at all? We need some more information about what you're trying to accomplish if you'd like any more help doing it.
