I have Ubuntu Hardy Heron hosted on VMware Server 2 under Windows XP. The XP video driver provides a virtual wide monitor, size 2560x1024. Unfortunately, the System>Screen Resolution menu doesn't offer this configuration and all the old advice on adding resolutions and so on seems to have been invalidated. Adding svga.maxWidth and maxHeight lines to the .vmx file doesn't seem to help. Possibly, I could add something to Xorg.conf, but my last attempt failed messily.
