When I scan using the coolscan, do I need to select anything in the output requester of the scan software, or do I leave the default 1350 dpi and 0.96 x 1.44 inches the same ? I'm outputting to an Epson Photo Ex,usually at 10x8, and have found 150 dpi to 240 dpi is a good result. Do I chenge to this resolution in the Scan requester ?

Because you are scanning 35mm I always scan at maximum dpi....due to printing on A3, as this gives the best possible image quality.
Maximum value is 2700....if you have cropped the image it will let you know if 2700 is too much as the value will be in red, but simply type in the maximum value allowable. However, having said all that, for 10x8 prints I doubt you'll notice the difference.
You probably only want to ever scan once so do best settings. Scan at full resolution and it means you'll have plenty of pixels if you want to print really larger in future or if you want to crop before printing.
