what are you printing (from PDF, word, outlook?).... and what kind of printers?

Commented:
Are the printers integrated into the SBS environment or are they outiside the domain and just tcp/ip network based printers?
Are you printing direct to TCP/IP or are these shared from SBS2008.  

I've come across a SBS2008 setup badly where shared printers were being used, it caused 10MB PDF's to take half hour to print to a large Xerox MFP.  There are features which are designed to work with Vista/7 clients and can cause issues with XP if not properly configured.
