You can always buy virtualbox. It's free, fast and awesome.

Tried it on my 20" iMac...blech. It didn't do the video right. The days I have to edit the xorg.conf file should be over.

Not saying it won't get better...and I will continue to try it.

All I had to do was select "install virtualguest additions" and install that in all the guests.

I get 1440x900 in all 3 guests.

It can't hurt to try the others with the free trials. I am going to as well.
