slackware 9 setup problems with dell 20" flat panel monitor

I am attempting to load slackware 9 on my machine. I have a dell 20" flat panel monitor. At the boot prompt I am loading the raid.s kernel and the text on my screen becomes large and unreadable. anyone know of a way around this? Perhaps a kernel parameter?

any help would be appreciated.

Have you checked the XF86Config file? I don't think it is the kernel blowing up the size. Did your graphics card detect properly? I would start with the XF86Config file. Hope this helps a little.

I don't think the kernel has anything to do with that. Examine the XF86Config in /etc
