Bonjour for windows server 2008?

Does anyone have any information on installing bonjour on a windows server 2008 r2 64 bit?

I want to streamline our system now that we have upgraded to server 2008.

so while this installs a printer via bonjour, it doesn't seem like it's setting up a printer share.

Ideally i want to host the printer on this server and have bonjour users connect to the server for printing.

while that's helpful, the server allready is set up as a print server hosting 32 bit and 64 bit drivers for 6 seperate printers. I managed to set up the bonjour printer item through the wizard, and set it up as shared.

however it's not visible from any Mac computers. I'm trying to provide centralized printing for mac users specifically

Maybe this will help - http://www.computing.net/answers/mac/mac-print-server/8328.html

On the printing issue, if you hook the printer (via
USB) up to an OS 10.2 Mac and turn on Printer
Sharing, the printer can be used by the network.

wasn't able to host bonjour from the server as i wanted but this at least allows me to centralize printing to some cheap samba machines.
