How to get VMWare Unity working for Backtrack4

Hi, I am running VMWare workstation 7 and using the Backtrack4 vm guest for security testing tools. I'm able to get unity to work with my CentOS vmware guest and my Ubuntu vmware guest, but can't seem to get it to work with BackTrack4.

The error message I get is:

  The virtual machine cannot enter Unity mode because:
  - The guest operating system's resolution cannot be changed.
  Check that Unity is supported for this guest operating system and that the latest version of       VMware Tools is installed.

I've tried reinstalling vmware tools and that didn't help.

Here is uname for bt4: Linux bt 2.6.30.9 #1 SMP Tue Dec 1 21:51:08 EST 2009 i686 GNU/Linux

Anybody get vmware unity to work with BT4?
