Yes. You need to configure your Tor to open a ControlPort and set
a password, then feed that password to Vidalia. See the manual
for how to configure your Tor and how to generate the password

That is what I did
..and tor is listening on 9051 but I don't now how to tell Vidalia that it should connect after feeding the passwort in the Vidalia Advanced Settings Tab.

Then I thought the settings in that tab (advanced) are used to configure tor not to connect to tor.
