I'm not familiar with Slackware, but you can try telling the kernel the VGA resolution to use when it boots. That would be a vga=XXX parameter in the menu.lst file on SUSE, but your distro may be different. You can set the XXX value to "ask" and the boot will offer a menu of resolutions to try.
The following are the decimal vga=<value> for various resolutions and colour depths, though your video card may not support them all. You can use decimal or 0xHex.
Depth 640x480 800x600 1024x768 1280x1024
8 769 771 773 775
15 784 787 790 793
16 785 788 791 794
24 786 789 792 795
