printing shuts down my network

Specs: Windows XP
my network freezes up when i send a job to a printer - but only sometimes. the simple act of choosing file print can cause the error as well. this seems to happen often in the morning but could NOT happen for several days, and then it can happen two or three times in a day. we have several printers, an impact printer that runs off of a pc, a couple of network printers. we have about ten pcs with various operating systems, xp home, xp professional

I would start with the event viewer. Look for error messages on each of the PCs.
