This paticular driver has been abadoned in favor of kkjj's EEEPC_Utility in combination with modded versions of official drivers. See "I'm not even using my own build of IEGD." -LazerTag.
See resolution_scaling_in_xp for updated directions.
This page and resolution_scaling_in_xp need to be merged.
Ok, ever since I posted some screen shots of my Eee running Lazertag's drivers, (modded by Stonerkitty) with the DPI set to 144 I have been asked by lots of people through PM's to explain how I did it and where I got the drivers. Since this is all readily available on the forums, (in multiple threads) I thought I would just consolidate the information in one easy to reference and follow topic.
In order to do this you need to install Windows XP on your Eee. If you don't know how to install XP on your Eee, follow this link to learn how:
Also, if you wish to nlite XP to save space, you can follow the below link to learn how:

Credit goes to lazertag for the drivers, Stonerkitty for his modification of these drivers, and themodshop.net for its explanation, (whch I copied) of how to install the drivers properly. Note that this is actually downscaling, meaning the 1024×768 resolution is being created virtually on your Eee. It is not native, (the Eee's native resolution is 800×480). Here's how to do it:
Alright, first, go download these drivers and unzip them:
Now, follow these directions carefully:
Click Start, then right click on My Computer, then select Properties
Go to the Hardware tab and select Devices.
In the Devices menu find Display Adapter.
Right click on the Display Adapters and click Update Driver.
Click Install Manually
Then select Dont search I will select the driver to install.
Then click Have Disk and navigate to where you extracted the drivers.
This will install the drivers to your system.
Do this for both video adapters and then restart your EeePc and you should now be able to use 800×600 and 1024×768 scaled.
If you don't follow the instructions exactly you will encounter errors. Make sure everything is done manually.
There are some things to be aware of regarding the 1024×768 resolution hack. First, standby mode does not work, (your Eee won't resume from standby if it goes to sleep, you will have to reboot). Second, it is not optimized for gaming. Basically, it will give you much more screen real estate for web browsing, word processing, and having open windows. It is a great utility, just don't expect it to be exactly like your home PC's higher resolution.
Now, as for the DPI, close out all windows and right click on your desktop.
Then select Settings
Finally, select Advanced.
This brings you to where you can select DPI.
Depending on your nlited installation of XP, (or if you nlited at all) you may have to install the new fonts. You will need a full XP CD to do this, so make sure you have it on hand. I recommend you set the DPI at 144.
Below are some pictures of my Eee running this configuration. The first is my desktop, the second is a picture of the forums, and the third is a picture of my desktop taken from my HTC Touch Cruise, to show what the screen looks like when not taken from a screen capture utility.
Once again, thanks to Lazertag, stonerkitty, and themodshop.net for all of this information. I am just consolidating it and making an easy to follow guide with the info all in one place. Good luck!
extra note: win 2000: go to display properties and window appearance and reduce the “menu” item size to its lowest (to lower further, reduce the font size) and also “active title bar” width. this makes your windows work area look MUCH bigger! icons in title bar and startmenu tray also get squished, even when returned to large width, they are expanded again with less detail, i presume you delete the shelliconcache to fix.
