Hi all,

  Recentlly, I have installed a Windows 7 Enterprise kvm guest under a CentOS 5.4 
kvm host (fully updated) using virtio drivers and all works ok except two things: 
sound and vga resolution.

  a) How can I increase vga resolution to 1440x900 or is not possible to configure 
more than 1024x768 when virt-manager is used??

  b) I have assigned a sound device to this windows guest (ac97) but it doesn't 
works. Do I need to download this driver from some location?? Under hardware view 
windows shows me a multimedia device but without driver installed.
