vga framebuffer setting

How do I stop the message asking me to select a vga setting on every boot or press enter or space to see the various settings available?

running slackware 13.1 on an aspire one netbook

Edit /etc/lilo.conf and comment
vga = ask
if it is uncommented, and uncomment a more suitable option. "vga = normal" is the non-framebuffer option but there are nicer looking framebuffer resolutions -- but make sure your video card/monitor can handle them. Don't forget to run `lilo` as root after editing lilo.conf.
