Resolution Change outside of X

In Redhat 7.1 I was able to change the resolution for full text mode to 1024x768 so that when it was booting up the text was displayed in 1024x768 and it had a little picture of tux at the top, is there any way to do this in redhat 9.0?

Enable framebuffer mode. This is done either with a kernel recompile, or finding a precompiled kernel with framebuffer enabled.

Then to resize it's adding vga=ask or something similar in your boot manager.

Read the docs for more info:
