Hello all!
I'm running Desktop v8.04 on Sun's Virtual Box running on top of Vista Home Pro (so you see why I'm running Virtual Box) and I'm having a problem with Ubuntu using Full Screen mode. When I fire up the guest OS I get a request from Virtual Box to change the video sub-system to 32bit from 16bit in the guest OS.
I'm a total novice with Linux and I have no idea how to do this. I've poked around looking for a way, but no luck.
I'm hoping this will help me get the full screen that I need.
Many thanks for any assistance/direction!

have you installed the virtualbox guest additions into your ubuntu vm?

this may help if you're new to installing files that way:

That did the trick (I guess I should of said I was a novice with the Sun app too).
I bookmarked the youtube guy as well.
Once again Thanks!
