I went about it in a totally different way, and the solution is worthy of an article on it's own.
Posting the solution  would mean posting my whole form, and the code is my customers property so i'm not sure I'm supposed to post it in the pub domain ;)

I can add this:
There is a mapping in code between the win32 paper sources and the .NET papersourcekind so what i'm doing now is something like
- fill tray dropdown from .NET (the papersourcekind stuff)
- when the user clicks print, I use slightly modified code from here (I added a function to retrieve the orginal settings so i can restore them afterwards, if you look at the set function you should be able to make a get function)
http://www.codeproject.com/dotnet/NET_Printer_Library.asp
With the function from that article I set the SYSTEM printer settings and change the default tray.
- when printing is finished I restore the original system settings.

I realise this is tricky because the settings might not be restored if the program is killed or crashed, but the customer would rather have it that way than no way to select the tray.
