Maximum text resolution in FreeBSD 4.10

I have a laptop with 1024x768 resolution. I can achieve that resolution graphically using FreeBSD 4.10, but not in text mode. I have compiled VESA into the kernel and have tried all of the text modes listed using vidcontrol -i mode. Currently I have allscreens_flags="-g 100x37 VESA_800x600" in /etc/rc.conf. It would appear that the VESA_1024x768 mode is not supported in 4.10.

Any info/help would be most appreciated.
