    Default BackTrack 3 and Virtual Box

    Using BT with Virtual Box. Basically just booting the live CD ISO in it so I don't have to reboot.

    No hard drive installation.

    My laptop screen is a 1280x800, odd size but I don't like scrolling the window BT is running in. I tried changing the vga= option on the VESA KDE boot but it had no effect on changing the resolution.

    Anyone know how to force it to boot in 800x600?

    try installing the vbox additions (virtualbox drivers) into BT... then again, it's LIVE so not much use to scale just for one session...

    Yeah, the additions for a live cd just wouldn't make sense. I wish VBox had a setting that limited the resolution the same as if you had a monitor that couldn't go higher.
    If I could switch the resolution after booting it would be ok but that doesn't work.
