Not possible natively.
You can script an activeX from http://www.meadroid.com/
in IE

And even with the scripted activeX you still have the problem of the local setup of the printer.  The user will still very much be in control of the final result.

If the printing of a WEB page is critical you should convert it to a printer friendly format like PDF.
