You'd have to check the documentation that comes with the kernel. There are probably thousands of options for the various kernel subsystems and drivers. The framebuffer documentation, unfortunately, is pretty out-of-date, actually. The only reason I know these options is from hanging on in various related channels on IRC.
one quick question what is relation between append = "video=1024x768" and vga=normal?
does both have to be enabled in lilo.conf?
im asking just to clarify
I have just been playing with this.
The 'vga=normal/ext/ask/n' is used by the kernel until the inteldrmfb is setup. Have a look at 'dmesg | less'.
The 'append = "intelfb:video=1024x768"' is used by the kernel to configure the framebuffer.
Apart from /usr/src/linux/Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt you can also take a look at /usr/src/linux/Documentation/fb/intelfb.txt
