For this same reason, I leave my Windows default printer set to Adobe
PDF - no issues at all then. :)

As mentioned above, I leave my Windows default printer to Adobe PDF.
Then, I don't need to worry about FrameMaker settings.

Then, it depends on the purpose to print those few or more pages.

If it is to see/review what the end look/feel result will be, then it is
best to generate the few pages in PDF and print from within Acrobat -
shows the likely printed outcome eventually when the recipient of the
document will get it.

If it is just to proof the text (or some local purpose like an internal
review), then I just select the actual printer at that point and print
those pages and not worry about the look/feel till much later.
