I don't know how to do this with FileNameSelector, but it can be 
achieved with a combination of Button and SystemDialog["FileSave"] or 

I have done this and found it pretty straight forward, so if you need 
more information I could try to find the code snippet, but probably you 
are faster rewriting it your way. The only pitfall I can remember is 
that you need to use Method -> "Queued" for the Button, otherwise the 
preemptive link is likely to time out...
