console resolution on boot


i installed slackware 9.1 on my machine at work. all is well, i'm just slightly irritated as follows:

during boot process my console is at 80x25 text.

about half-way through, the screen goes blank and i'm in some graphical resolution (very small text).

why is this?

i have the same install at home, but without this change in resolution.

any help is appreciated.

thank you,
