Printers disappear and spooler hangs

I have just done a fresh install of Windows 2003 onto an IBM box that ran
Windows 2000 TS just great but since the cut-over it has been a nightmare;
the printers on my XP clients are continually getting hung and the printer
service appears to be stopped thus causing users sessions to hang and the
printers disappear. If I restart the print spooler locally it solves the
local problem but that's now being done a few times a day.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Chris
