You need the cups package installed on all machines but only need to run it on one of them you designate as the print server. I have a single Linux Print server named printsrv running cupsd with all the network printers defined with proper drivers/PPDs/etc. On the 100+ other Linux machines at my site I have turned off the cups service daemon.

This doesn't answer the placement question but solves my issue by hiding the unnecessary partitions from the left menu. Use the gnome-disk-utility to edit mount options. Then deselect Automatic mount option, mount at startup and show in user interface.
