I have seen different screen-sizes for different types of guests (WinXP and Ubuntu).

I'm not sure what is going on here, but WinXP available resolutions are defined tpically 4:3 ratios and the Ubuntu one has tiny 800x600.

Unless I run a guest vncserver I can't see how to specify the default vnc window size.  The reason I dont want to use a guest vncserver is I want localhost access to the VNC session and not the DHCP address given to the host.

Does anyone have any suggestion on what should/could be added to the xen guest configuration file or XEN host configuration to pick a specific screen resolution.
