Hello,

Did you install vmware tool? To get full resolution and better I/O performance vmware tool it required. it provides drivers to vmware emulated hardware.

How to install vmware tools in rhel vm : see http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/mic...rnalId=1018392

Regards,
Prasad

here is what you need to do

Code:
#system-config-display
on the tabs you will see an option hardware or monitor(I am not very sure) where by default vmware is unable to recognize the screen. So manually select TFT screen or CRT which ever you are using and then you will get different options of resolution as per your choice

Inside the CRT and LCD option you should get the resolution size when you click the arrow.

Check the attached file
