When printing off the command-line, Fop looks for a java system property called "dialog", and if it's there it will pop up the AWT Print Dialogue that lets you choose printer. Just adapt either fop.bat or fop.sh so that java is invoked with this option: -Ddialog=true. If you've embedded FOP then it's a bit more complicated but a look at PrintStarter.java might be useful.
