You cannot add new hardware to the virtual machine. The VM only exists in
software; it doesn't know anything about the "real" physical video card
installed on your machine. The list of emulated hardware is described in the
online Help file: BX440 motherboard, s3 Trio Video card, etc.
The 8MB s3 card is pretty modest; but it is also extremely stable (so, a
good candidate for virtualisation). It is adequate for 2D applications.
Obviouly it has no 3D capability - if you need fancy 3D grphics, then
running in a virtual machine is not a good choice for deployment.
