oK, I changed the rsolution form 800x600 to 1024x768 by changing the resolution on the right to 1024x768.

When I changed that 1024 to the resolution I want, it worked, cool!

Grab VMware instead, it's a MUCH better program.
To use VMware for free: Download VMware Workstation trial. Create a workstation.
Download VMware player (it's free). Open the workstation from there and enjoy.

Do you maybe know where I can get VMware for linux without registrations and other stuff, do I really have to go though all that to get trial? Version for Windows is everywhere, but for linux only a few, as muches I found... Maybe I wasn't looking at the right place, that's why I'm asking.

Just open a terminal, cd into the directory, and issue
Code:
sudo vmware-install.pl
Press Y at all the prompts, and you're done :smile:
