Console resolution
How can I change console resolution from 1280x768 to 1024x768?
and my KDE fonts look thick

The resolution of the framebuffer console is controled by the vga=something parameter in /boot/grub/menu.lst

Change the existing value to the one that matches your requirement:


    | 640x480  800x600  1024x768 1280x1024
256 |  0x301    0x303    0x305    0x307 
32k |  0x310    0x313    0x316    0x319 
64k |  0x311    0x314    0x317    0x31A 
16M |  0x312    0x315    0x318    0x31B

Can't help with the fonts. Maybe this is also related to a wrong resolution.

When loading modules kernel etc is the problem

You mean the part where the boot messages/splash screen is shown? Then it is as I said. If the parameter is not there, you can add it. You can also test the value by typing e.g. 'vga=0x317' on the grub screen. You may need to run mkinitrd after changing the resolution to include the correct splash pictures.

Otherwise you have to be more specific what you mean.
