Are you trying to change the resolution? (I just did a google search on your command and only got three pages, 2 of which were foreign languages). I've only ever used fbset to change a background...as in "fbsetbg -f /path/to/image".

Sorry if I got the wrong idea.

i got it but no i was wanting to change settings for fbxine to play movies in the console without x server running

Code:
fbset -a -xres 1024 -vxres 1024 -yres 768 -vyres 768 -depth 32 -match -accel true -hsync high -vsync high
that did it but it eats resources like candy!!!
