This was answered previously, please check the archives.

The short answer is that you cannot in any straightforward fashion
programmatically assign a printjob to a specific printer pre-Java 1.4.
There new JavaPrintService facility in 1.4 is promising, but I think
you might have trouble trying to run fop in 1.4 yet.
