I am setting up a print server. It has 2 9gb scsi hd's and will be
running windows nt. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to set
the hard drives up? Should I mirror them or create a stripe set,

Well, think about what you're going to be using this machine for. A print server doesn't need to be blazing fast, just reliable, so I'd go for the mirroring unless you're going to be supporting five zillion printers, though honestly you're not going to use the HDD much anyways.
