broken boot parameter video=

i'm using slackware 10.2 with a 2.6.10 kernel that i compiled myself. i'm trying to use a different framebuffer driver and i've been told that the only way to do this is using the video=fbdriver parameter at lilo or to enter it in lilol.conf. well, i've tried both. when i enter it at startup, it gets ignored. when i try to put it in lilo.conf and run lilo, i get an error: "unrecognized token: video". am i doing something wrong? what's up here?
