Sorry, but no.

The A700 has that ability using the included remote control software, but not the A100.

How does this work anyway? Can i attach a portable 4 inch screen, like those portable picture viewers with Harddisk, to shoot and view the pic right after taking the picture??

Perhaps I'm misinunderstanding you...

If you want tethered control (USB attached camera that you can control via PC, with the image file being transferred to the PC as shot), you'll need the A700 and Sony's remote control software.

If you only want to view what you've shot, most cameras (including the A100) have video out. So, anything you see on the camera's LCD will also go to this video port. To play photos, you'd simply use the play features on the camera (and whatever you see on the camera's LCD will also go to the video out port). You'd need a video card that could accept an input with a PC, and software to display it. You can also connect it cirectly to a Television with a video in port (that's what the video out port on the camera was designed for). A video cable should have been included with your camera.
