Sean Daniel has posted a great article on How to use your Home Server as an AirPrint server for only $10 on his blog.
Here is how Sean starts his excellent post:
As I move more and more of my computing and data to the Cloud with services like SkyDrive. I am reducing the amount of computing power I have in my house. I have an iPad (v1), a Laptop, and of course my Windows Home Server.

Great article. I upgraded my router’s firmware and it just worked (Canon Pixma MP970 multifunctional printer).
