Question set console resolution after kernel recompiling

I have just recompiled my kernel 2.4.18 and now, when i load slackware my console resolution is 640x480. Before recompiling my resolution in console was 1024x768. Maybe somebody can help me to set my old 1024x768 resolution ?

My video card - GeForce 2 mx400

In lilo i use vga:

# LILO configuration file
# generated by 'liloconfig'
# Start LILO global section
message = /boot/boot_message.txt
# Override dangerous defaults that rewrite the partition table:
# VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x64k
# Normal VGA console
# vga = normal
# VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x64k
# vga=791
# VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x32k
# vga=790
# VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x256
# vga=773
# VESA framebuffer console @ 800x600x64k
# vga=788
# VESA framebuffer console @ 800x600x32k
# vga=787
# VESA framebuffer console @ 800x600x256
# vga=771
# VESA framebuffer console @ 640x480x64k
# vga=785
# VESA framebuffer console @ 640x480x32k
# vga=784
# VESA framebuffer console @ 640x480x256
# vga=769
# End LILO global section

when you say 640x480 do you just mean that the wriing is really large? do you still get the tux logo? if not then you didn't compile the kernel with the framebuffer in it. enable Experiemtal eatures and then tell it to compile the vesa framebuffer into the kernel, then it should work
