Do you mean that ' cat .config | grep -i vesa '
return nothing ? weird...

As for vga=normal, man lilo.conf say :
normal: select normal 80x25 text mode.

But maybe did you add kernel parameter that require framebuffer
so it bypass vga global settings ?

aha..i found it, and it's not set.

( i have no normal vga or vesa support atm. )

Can you guys please explain how to add up these options with the kernel configuration. Will it be okey if I just edit /boot/config and make these modifications? Else Do I need to run *make menuconfig* and do all these things ?

Better is make menuconfig because it automatically solves some module dependencies for you

For framebuffer feature, look at
Device Drivers -> Graphics support

And try help to get some help about a module

Also the make menuconfig has a search feature, just type " / ", a search field appears
so type any keyword you want and press enter
