Need help changing all network printers to B&W and duplex printing on Server 2008 R2

Hello I'm trying to find a way/script/GPO/PS that will allow me to change all existing print queues on a 2008 R2 print server to default to duplex printing and in B&W.  We have a few thousand printers and many print servers and to touch each queue is not feasible.  I hoping there is a script or GPO that can be run on each print server that will change those values.  Any ideas?
Thanks

What types of printers.
Folks like HP have enterprise admin utilities that are pretty good doing doing such tasks.
Even non HP printers.

@pdm554 - Yes they are over 90% HP so my first thought was Web Jet Admin but our HP account manager said HP recommends direct printing, not print server based queues.  So if you are setup to direct printing Web Jet can push changes but if it is Print server based it cannot.

@Tom - I will look this over, it looks promising.  Thanks.  If it works I'll accept yours as the solution.

Thank you both
