We had the same problem. The 2600 would keep kicking the print spooler off-line. We took it off the printer server eventually and resolved never to put it on again (ran locally after that with few issues).

This baffled the hell out of me. Standard printing from a virtual 2003 32bit did exactly the same. Print, goes then nothing
Luckily we have pcounter. Created a pcounter port and bobs your uncle it works fine.

I now have one of mine that the deputy head has in his and his pa's office - they would like it to only print in greyscale - but does the 2600 actually want to oh no of course it doesnt and will still only print colour!!! oh the joys of printers!

Use universal drivers it will.

Also try AUTO for the LPR namings...
If you need a reasonable colour laser, the Bothers aren't a bad deal, although lack SNMP feedback on some devices.
