I don't have a particular problem like yours, but it might be helpful to everyone else if you would post your fix. Don't get me wrong, we are all happy for you that you figured it out.

I suppose, its only for those who are comfortable with reconfiguring their kernels. In menuconfig or xconfig, go to "device drivers" section, "Graphics Support" subsection, and enable the following - "VGA 16-color"," vesa VGA graphics support"," virtual framebuffer support","console display driver support" and its suboptions 'video mode selection support' and 'framebuffer console support', and finally all the options in "logo configuration". After recompiling your kernel, your /etc/lilo.conf (or equivalent for grub) should have vga=791 or 788 (see more modes in those conf files).
(I guess its certainly not for newbies!)

gorus 03-07-2005 06:27 AM a noob myself... but ...compiled my kernel with all the graphical support needed for this .. the thing i was missing was lilo vga modes...somehow my lilo.conf doesnt show 791 and 788 modes.. its all good now.. thanks hirakendu....
