How can I point two print queues to the same printer?

Is there a way in Windows 2000 to have two print queues point to the same printer, without the printer having to be smart enough to not blow up?

Yeah, just create two printers via the Add Printer Wizard. No problem. The OS will manage sending documents to the printer without making the device go nuclear.
