You can add vga=ask to the kernel line in your grub.conf. You can
then get it to display supported video modes, and try different
modes. When you get it looking the way you want, replace ask with
the mode you want. I believe you have to prefix the value with 0x,
(vga=0x31a) or convert the value to decimal.
