I have vga=792 set in lilo.conf, not in the append section!
Then in the append section you need something like this:
for vesa : append="video=vesa:mtrr:pmipal:pro:ywrap"
or for radeon : append="video=radeonfb:1024-768-32@76"
I use rivafb with the above line, but from looking at the source it uses modedb also. There is
also Documentation in the kernel source that tells you how to do all of this. 8)
