    Hello

    I am running OS2 Warp V3 in Parallels WS 2.1 (WinXP host) and I am not able to set the screen resolution to more than 640x480. In the Parallels Tools I can't find a video driver for OS2. Do I miss something or is it simply not possible?

    OS/2 V4 *includes* a GENGRADD that Parallels can use!

    Fortunately, this does NOT apply to Warp V4, as it includes a GENGRADD that Parallels likes. One quibble (this applies to *all* versions of OS/2, and is not a Parallels problem): OS/2 actually looks better in 16-bit color (65536 colors) than 24-bit color (16.7 million colors). I had my V4 guest at 24-bit color (1024x768), but dropped back to 16-bit color due to too much green. The XP host runs at 1280x960 in 32-bit color.
