    did you install the update for 32bit or 64bit along with installing rsd? my buddy had that same issue because he forgot to install that update and the directions he was following skipped over that step.

    Windows XP
    If you have Windows XP, there are two methods to determine whether you are running a 32-bit or a 64-bit version. If one does not work, try the other.
    Method 1: View System Properties in Control Panel
    Click Start, and then click Run.
    Type sysdm.cpl, and then click OK.
    Click the General tab. The operating system is displayed as follows:
    For a 64-bit version operating system: Windows XP Professional x64 Edition Version < Year> appears under System.
    For a 32-bit version operating system: Windows XP Professional Version <Year> appears under System.
    Note <Year> is a placeholder for a year.
    Method 2: View System Information window
    Click Start, and then click Run.
    Type winmsd.exe, and then click OK.
    When System Summary is selected in the navigation pane, locate Processor under Item in the details pane. Note the value.
    If the value that corresponds to Processor starts with x86, the computer is running a 32-bit version of Windows.
    If the value that corresponds to Processor starts with ia64 or AMD64, the computer is running a 64-bit version of Windows.

    but since you said "netbook" I think you have 32bit home edition

    Also, make sure you're running RSD lite as an administrator. Also, this happened to a friend of mine at work and he had to re-install the motorola driver, and had to manually set RSD lite to run as an administrator
