Question GRUB + console framebuffer

How can i tell to GRUB to switch in framebuffer mode 1024x768 when booting linux? Just like we used 2 do that in lilo with:

"vga=793" ?

just add it to the line with your kernel and other info:

kernel /boot/bzImage root=/dev/hda3 hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi vga=791
that is what the particular line looks like in mine
