Lilo vga parameters under SuSe Linux


Hello guys! I have just installed SuSe, and I have installed the lilo boot loader under my partition sector, and so I can chainload it from a grub at mbr (the grub is not the suse one, it is the official downloaded from the GNU web page). It boots correctly, but there is a problem: the default resolution in the "vga" parameter is too high and I feel no good about that. I have tried to search the SuSe documentation about the possible vga combinations and which resoltion each one corresponds to, but had not success. Could someone send me a link to some place where I can find a list of possible vga resolutions that I can put in the "vga" parameter under my lilo.conf and which mode each one correspond to? Thanks so much!

(currently it is 'vga=0x31a')
