I am running virtual box on Windows 7. And I have installed an 'Ubuntu server' guest as one of my machine. Since it is a server guest, it just gives me a prompt to login when I start the machine.

My question is how can I increase the size of the VirualBox window so that I can have a bigger shell to access the 'Ubuntu gust'.

Thank you.

I found my answer to this here when I was looking. It details setting the framebuffer size in GRUB to manipulate the size of your console window.

Thanks. but where is the 'grub.cfg' file? – michael Nov 9 '12 at 17:30
/boot/grub/grub.cfg. Be CAREFUL. Making the wrong changes will render your system unbootable. Read twice, write once. – Xyon Nov 9 '12 at 23:34
