How to run UBUNTU on VirtualPC

Ubuntu as guest on VirtualPC can have only 800×600 screen size.
Here the solution:

Create a xorg.conf or modify if you have it like this:

Section "Device"
    Identifier    "Configured Video Device"
    Driver        "vesa"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier    "Configured Monitor"
    HorizSync     30-107
    VertRefresh   48-120
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier    "Default Screen"
    Monitor       "Configured Monitor"
    Device        "Configured Video Device"
    SubSection    "Display"
        Modes     "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    EndSubSection
EndSection

…and after restart xorg, change screen resolution.
