Change resolution in TTY

I'm not pleased with my resolution in my TTY consoles. And I would like to change them to a 1024*768 look. because now it looks more like 640*400

Where do I change this, and how do I change this!

this is my kernel version 2.6.10-5-386, running ubuntu ofcourse

If anybody can help me with this... I know it's possible, I've seen it before... But have never done it myself
