turn off framebuffer mode?

After compiling 2.6.7 and booting, the system starts up with framebuffer mode on, how do i switch it to normal mode?

Btw, my lilo.conf shows vga mode = normal. ?

I don't use Lilo but I would erase the 'vga' line completly.... Just a thought. 'vga=normal' to Lilo probably means "run at 800x600".... Or maybe higher. man lilo might reveal more.
