Hmm, I'm using VMware server, v1.0.4. There are no options for making
these settings.  As I mentioned, other live CDs don't have this
problem. However, I have discovered

"Q: The X configuration does not seems to work, the resolution is too
low. What can I do?"

in the FAQ. The solution is given there too,  and I'm going to give it a try.
