How do I turn off the network printing messages on my workstations?

I have an LJ2200 printer (and others where this would apply) physically attached to my server via USB. It is shared to my network from there to 8 PC's. Every time someone prints something, a Windows bubble message pops up by the clock and it is becoming annoying. Is there a way to turn this messaging off? I know when we are sending items to the printer, and I do want to have the printer icon show up when we do so we can see the print cue, but I don't need the the little bubble confirmation. Any info is appreciated. A screenshot is attached for reference.

Click on: Start, Settings, Printers and Faxes, right-click within the window, and select "Server Properties", Click on the "Advanced" tab, Unselect show info notifications for local printers, and the same for your network printers.

I agree with Jon.

Printers and Faxes, properties, "Advanced" tab.

It is a little different on Win2k than XP but I think you get the idea.
