Colored console


I recently installed SuSE 8.1 at work and I got a console with a blue/white line around it and a blue/white background. This looked awesome.
Now here's my problem, I updated my SuSE 7.3 server at home to SuSE 8.1 and I still have a boring and simple console. How can I also get that blue/white screen on my server at home?

P.S.: I mean my main console, so not the one in KDE.

Problem is solved.

Linux need to be started with vga=xxx as parameter. Where xxx is de code for resolution en color depth.
