How can I get Virtual Box go full screen, as of now I am getting my guest OS in a small screen (640 x 480) type, even 'going full screen' doesn't make any difference ?

I want my guest OS to be of same screen size as my host OS !

You have to install the VirtualBox Guest Additions

VirtualBox has special software that can be installed inside Windows, Linux and Solaris virtual machines to improve performance and make integration much more seamless. Among the features provided by these Guest Additions are mouse pointer integration and arbitrary screen solutions (e.g. by resizing the guest window).
