1. Copy aos.ini to myaos.ini (aos.exe at first load options from it if present).
2. Modify Boot2 parameter in myaos.ini as follows
; Boot2 = Display.Install  --fullscreen
Boot2 = Display.Install --width=800 --height=600
You may set any standard or non-standard resolution that you wish.

and the aos didn't support the net card 82579v
You have 2 options here: find supported net card or write driver for unsupported card.

RealTek cards are rather cheap and wide distributed.

Or, possible 3rd option is to obtain device id code (PCITools.Scan~) of your card and try to tweak the Intel8255x driver to make it "know" your card by its id, and add corresponding record to DriverDatabase.XML This may not work...
Or to find somewhere in *nix sources the 82579v driver and analyze what is missing in Intel8255x driver to support 82579v card.
