I think that it is the framebuffer that I need to utilize to reach nifty resolutions via the console, right?
I need to know where to configure this. If I recall, in LILO there was an option, right? What about for GRUB? In RH7.2, there is the cute 'lil graphic setup for it, but goes to the plain ole' standard crap after I load Linux.
Well, if I am way off base in the name of what I want, just correct me. But the damn prompt is getting uglier as time passes on. Thats not kosher with me
# Next, if this file is not already named /etc/X11/XF86Config, make a copy
# with that name. This file ships with the name XF86Config-fbdev to avoid
# overwriting an existing config file.
# To get the kernel to start in VESA framebuffer mode, you need to pass it
# a vga= init string at boot time. For example, if you use LILO you'll
# probably find a vga=normal string in your /etc/lilo.conf. If you edit that
# to one of the values in this table:
# Colours 640x480 800x600 1024x768 1280x1024 1600x1200
# 256 | 769 771 773 775 796
# 32,768 | 784 787 790 793 797
# 65,536 | 785 788 791 794 798
# 16.8M | 786 789 792 795 799
# ...such as this for 1024x768x64k:
# vga = 791
# and then reinstall LILO by running 'lilo' as root, then at the next boot
# Linux should start in a VESA framebuffer console mode.
