How much virtual memory have you set for "Display", and have you checked either 2d or 3d?

Then set the XP resolution to 1024?

BFK yes i did, but it was SP2 not SP3, isseu i selected 128MB of graphic memory, and enabled 3d accelleration (2d was greyed out for some reason), and i set resolution to 1280*1024 and it full screened (think i may have selected auto resize guest display too)

It is really easy to slipstream SP3 and make a new install cd ... ?

OK, Martin ... I though you said something earlier about slipstreaming, but my old brain sometimes plays tricks on me ... and I never know what expertise someone might possess ... so I mention it.
