how can i have print server redundancy without clustering?

I have 2 servers 2008 I am configuring them as 2 print servers. I need to have them as redundancy for eachother to the end user. I can't use clustering because I don't have storage server. I know that I can have them to point to each other by using DNS and Cname. The idea is I never did it before by using dns and cname. can someone tell me the steps to use DNS AND Cname for those two servers

Have you looked into printer pooling? I would do a google search on this, but only issue with this is that it requires that printers be same make and models; otherwise, you need to make sure they use the exact same printer driver. Hope this helps.

printer pooling is for print devise and the redundancy is for the servers , so if one server went offline for any reason the second server should pick up the print job for the printer and keep printing. i know clustering is good for this but i need moor hardware .i am using server 2008 enterprize and it has the ISCSI Initiator but i need storage server whish will hold the iscsi target software and for sure it is ($$$$$$$). so i read that i can have thenm done on dns and have those two servers to point to each other but i really trying to find steps to have this done.many thanks for your replay.
