You have to have support for it compiled in the kernel. Look under
"console drivers" and turn on "video mode selection support".
A line like :
vga = 10
In lilo.conf will set your video card to VGA mode 10 upon boot (different
cards have different modes at different numbers). Use
vga = ask
to get a prompt at boot time.
