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.
