I tried to install Canon's EOS software on my Toshiba netbook (NB205) and ran into a problem with the resolution.
First I copied the EOS CD-ROM to my laptop and then transfered the files to a SD card and then to my netbook. When I tried to install the software a warning box popped up and said that the resolution of my netbook prevented the installation of the software. My netbook runs at 1024x600 and the minimum resolution supported buy the Canon EOS software is 1024x768.
I then went into the netbook graphics setting (right-click on the desktop and select properties) and then go to advanced. In the monitor properties select "use resolutions not supported", or something to that effect. You can then select 1024x768 and install the software.
Once the software is installed you can run the netbook at 1024x600, but you will have some of the software display missing when you run the EOS Utility. It is easier to use 1024x768 and just scroll.
The reason I was even trying to install the software on my Toshiba netbook was to take time lapse photos of the night sky. I do not have a remote timer, but the software can do the same thing.
