Debian 5.0 Window Size / Resolution Issue

    I installed Paralleles Desktop 5.0 on my Mak Book Pro in order to virtualize Debian 5.0. Evererything went fine except a small but annoying issue. The size of the virtula machine window does not fit the hosted desktop size : I cannot see the full hosted desktop (I need to scroll). I got the issue for both full- mode view or window view.
    It is pretty annoying and if I cannot fix it I will have to remove it (I trie to modify the resolution settings in Debian but it does not work: each time I change them, Debain reboot and get back to initial setting).

    I do not know if the issue come from the combinaison of Debian 5.0/PD 5.0/ Mac book pro .... Or if I just missed a parameter I can play with to make it work. Does anyone managed to make it work? Do you have similar issue with debian 6.0 or ubuntu?

    Any help would be highly appreciated.

    Thank you
