As I have already said, you will need to install Fedora first, not just start the iso. After it has been installed, if it is VMware you will need to install the VMware tools that include the VMware Drivers, or if you have installed it within VBox, then the equivalent of VMware tools would be the "Guest Additions" which you'd have to install. After that you should be to change the resolution of the VM using the fedora utility, or actually it automatically should adjust to the window you are using for the VM.

If you are just running the iso, you must first install it to a Virtual Disk inside the player, then install the VMware Tools. Once the tools are installed you should be able to change the resolution of your VM.

here you have VM player and you cant install os with it, you need full program to do that, but its not free. Other way is to use virtual box, it free and easy to use. Also you even dont need to set some display settings virtual box will do everything own.

Of course you can install VM's into VMware Player. It is a fully functional virtualization solution.

What have you done before with no success? What exactly didn't you have success with? what were the error messages you got?

yes you can install, but you cannot create virtual hard drive in VM player.

rindiCommented:
You can create virtual drives. As I said, it is a fully functional virtualizer with similar features that VBox has. Some of them are better than those of VBox, for example the video 3d support for the graphic card is better than that of VBox, where it is still experimental, so you can run Linux guests with display enhancements on, or Windows 7 with Aero features on, without issues.

there are two ways for you to view in full screen.
1. you can change it to your desired resolution.(mostly equal to the resolution of your physical monitor)

2. then after that, you can press Ctrl + Alt + Enter

--Hope it helps

I'm using both, VBox and VMware Player, and haven't really seen any difference in performance, but I haven't done any serious tests. I've just seen that some distro's are easier to install on VBox, while others are easier on VMware. Also, if you are running a Linux Host VBox usually is easier to install on linux and better supported by the distro's repositories.

@asterix,

I think he has used ctrl+alt+enter. If I look at the screen shot it looks like the full screen is used, but the VM itself doesn't properly fill it out. That normally means the Video drivers haven't been installed in the VM, and so you can't adjust that resolution away from the defaults.
