Hi Virgil,

You can tell NDSolve to use a fixed step size, but I do not know how to 

set it to a specific value, besides setting a maximal value

NDSolve has an options "Method" that can take a "controller" with the 

value of "FixedStep". E.g.:

eq = {f'[t] == f[t], f[0] == 1};

sol = f /.

   NDSolve[eq, f, {t, 0, 0.01},

     Method -> {"FixedStep", Method -> "ExplicitEuler"},

     EvaluationMonitor :> Print[t]][[1]]

hope this helps, Daniel
