I'm running Fedora 11 on a VirtualBox installed on Windows Vista machine.

I'm unable to increase the resolution on the virtual instance, the only available resolution on the Fedora instance are 640x480 or 800x600.

How do I increase my Display Resolution ?

First, make sure you've installed the VirtualBox Guest Additions.

Then, at least on a Mac OS X host, you can simply resize the window and the size will change in the guest OS. Or you should be able to access more sizes with the guest additions.
