I am running Ubuntu 7.04 AMD64(using official binary) and I have my X running on 1440x900, I installed Windows XP Professional(32bit) using Virtualbox 1.4.0, once it finished installing(wich is amazingly fast!!), I installed the guest addons aswel, restarted. But when I was about to change the guest resolution I didn't see my host's resolution on the XP display settings..I saw 1440x1050 but my screen is 1440x900, can this be fixed?

If you have the guest additions installed, you can resize the guest's display to arbitrary sizes simply by resizing the VirtualBox window (Windows guests) or by adding an entry to Xorg.conf (Linux guests).
