Framebuffer+RADEON+Fixed Sync Monitor

I compiled a new kernel (2.4.20) with the RADEON framebuffer driver buited-in the kernel, i can boot it perfectly in a standard console mode or a framebuffer's mode that my little 14" monitor can support (640x480, 800x600). When I'm logged on i do "fbset 1280x1024-74", plug my huge (HP A1097C 19.2") monitor in, turn it on and everything looks beautyful. Now I'm trying to get it work without plug my little monitor. I know i have to pass some kernel parameter using append in the lilo.conf file. I'm using this:

root = /dev/hda3
append = "video=radeonfb:1280x1024@74"

But it doesn't works after while it set a 640x480x8@60 resolution.

I've looking for the right radeon framebuffer driver's parameter but, I don't find it anywhere.

Can somebody tell me what I'm doing wrong??

Is there another way to set it right at boot time?

Does somebody know the right radeon driver's paramaters???

by the way i got a RADEON 64DDR VIVO.

Thnx in advance.

Francisco Moreno.
