Fedora 8 display incorrect

I am running Windows XP SP2 and installed Microsoft Virtual PC 2007  version6.0.156.0 . I then created a virtual machine and installed Fedora Core cersion 8. The installtion went fine but when I start the virtual machine Fedroa loads up and gives me the opportunity to login but the display in all jumbled up. I can see the login prompt and fill in my credentials but after it logs in , I cannot do anything . Hitting the enter key does nothing. On loading I can get into a command prompt ; GRUB >
 How can I change the display parameters from this prompt.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
