I would like to know if a shared disk storage is necessary for creating a
printer cluster using MS Cluster Server on Win2k Advanced Server? Can I do
this using two DL320s without a shared disk storage?

Yes, shared storage is required. It is unsupported without a shared
storage.

Can I use Networked Load Balanced Clusters to do the printer clustering?
This would not require the shared disk storage?

Mel,

Although customers may have made NLB work for setting up Print Server, it
has no capability of failover and besides it's not a supported solution by
Microsoft.
