Do you mean that you want to make the 11 X 17 fit onto 8.5 X 11 or make it tile over multiple 8.5 X 11 pages?

In the page handling section of the Print dialog. Click teh Page Scaling dropdown and choose Tile large pages.

That creates 4 pages for each 11x17. Can you change it to 2?

You could try chaning the scale percentage and/or overlap.

 Also, make sure it is setup to print in landscape orientation since the original 11 X 17 is landscape.
