Red face Same ol' bone - VMWare, Laptop, Redhat 7.2 and resolution

I did as someone said the other day to look for solutions, but could not find. Apparently this is is to tough.
I have a CPQ EVO150 Laptop With CyberBlade i1 card.
If I set Runlevel to 5 in ETC I end up in a display-loop, boot-window and back to display and loops. Cannot kill it.
Apparently the XF86Free-4 or XConfigurator cannot set up the
CyberBlade correctly. Luckily there is Linux-Utilities on the pseudo
CD Rom you can mount, install and execute and that gives me
1024*768 just as one would expect. Now here comes the problem: I want the screen to be a 800*600 smaller window on
the desktop, not the whole darn LCD. I tweaked XF86Config-4.vm enough to get 800*600 quality but the darn size is still the whole physical screen. If I have a windows-vm-guest I can set the display to 800*600 and the screen becomes a window which is part of the physical screen. So what do I have to do?
