unsupported vga mode at boot time


Hello,

I'm using the ISO version (not retail) of Slackware 9.0 and I've just made the mistake to set vga= to an unsupported resolution in /etc/lilo.conf, so now I just have a blank screen when the kernel is loading -- if it is really loading. I also didn't make any boot disk.

Is there something I can do to be able to set my resolution back to the default one or to use another one?

Thanks,
Kuranes

Obviously, you have access to a computer, so make a boot disk now from the Slack CD you burned.

I can't understand how I didn't think about this.
Thank you very much
