[CentOS-virt] high resolution video for kvm vm

I'm running a fuduntu vm (based on fedora 14) on a CentOS 6 kvm
server. I have tried changing the video in virt-manager from cirrus to
vga and restarting the VM, but the maximum resolution that the client
will let me set is still only 1024x768. Should I be able to get high
res video with the kvm VGA mode? Note that the VM is running on a
CentOS server while virt-manager is running on my local desktop.
Would I be better off trying to get the vmware VGA driver working? I'm
assuming I have to extract the driver from the vmware tools package and
manually install it into the X server, because VMware tools won't
install under kvm.
Also, I run with the keyboard option to swap caps lock and control on my
linux desktop, which does not seem to get passed through to the guest.
I tried setting the same swap caps lock and control option in the guest,
but it does not work. Any ideas?
