Hi Josh,

	Thanks for your quick response.
	The VBoxControl can do something with the display mode, but it is
only useful for Windows guest.
	Today, I've scanned more codes about the additions, I find the
VBoxSetMode() method inside the src/../Additions/x11/vboxvideo/vboxvideo_*.c
file. So I guess maybe I can port these codes to frame buffer driver in some

	Now I am thinking about the how the addition adjusts the guest OS
resolution to the host's. Can anyone help me clarify this issue?

P.S: Host OS is Ubuntu 9.04, Guest OS is ZenWalk Core 5.2.

Best regards,
