Yep. Just drag the printer icon out of the list in the Print prefs panel to wherever you want it... Boom!
But here's how to do it the way John wants:
Open Automator from your apps folder
If a menu pops up asking what you want to do, select Custom
In the Actions list on the far left, click Utilities
In the list just to the right of that, double-click Print Finder Items
The Print Finder Items box will pop-up on the far right of the Automator window
Choose the printer you want to set up to print from the drop-down menu. Don't worry about those tags underneath the drop-down menu.
Go to the File menu and select Save As Plugin...
Give it a name (probably something like "print to XYZ printer", or something like that). Choose Finder from the drop-down menu.
That's it. Now all you have to do is right click on a file in the Finder, scroll down to More/Automator/"name of your printer command". The file will print.
There is no #10, but I like even numbers. If you really want a #10, you could repeat the process for each printer you have, or choose the PDF Printer driver from the list (if you have Acrobat Pro installed) to have a file converted to PDF without opening it, hitting print, and clicking the PDF button in the print dialog box.
