Boot Resolution

I've just install the new Ubuntu 7.10 every things works good but i cant change the boot resolution

I tried append to the menu.lst file vga=791 as usual but i got a blank screen i also tried with vga=ask but i can only choose poor resolution 84x60.

I suppose that something is wrong with my video card (maybe some kernl module) but In gnome enviroment everythings is fine.

Any ideas??
