Changing resolution is easy, from graphical interface, you can goto
System --> Preference and Screen Resolution

If you are not able to get resolution higher than 800x600 then you need to check if rigt video card is detected. You can goto
System--> Display --> Hardware
See whether the it shows right display card as you have in your system..

Alternatively , give me output of :
Code: [Select]
#lspci

I think u should also verify whether the VMware tools are installed properly or not... if so Ricky is right on the run..
