When you've got the live-CD/iso booted up:
Go to the bottom toolbar, right click, go to 'Properties'
Check 'show hide buttons'
Do the same for the top.
Now you can 'hide' the toolbars, keeping them from blocking the buttons.
Install guest additions. Reboot. Then-
Go to system-administration-screens and graphics
Select the model and closest resolution for your screen available. You will probably not have the right resolution right away.
Then edit xconf (better instructions then what I'm able to give are available at ubuntuforums.org) .
I did this on my dell laptop, and now I have full-screen Ubuntu when I cntrl-F. Works great! Took me several tries to do it, though, which is why I'm posting this, hoping to make life easier for the next go-around.
Also, you don't want to max out your system memory with the VM. You have to have enough memory for BOTH OS's to run at the same time. One of the reasons I have two gig, for Ubuntu I give it 900 mg memory, with 10 meg for video. This is useless for games but does all my text stuff and internet just fine.
