    Need help changing video settings

    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:

    Thanks!
    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!
