from my menu.lst:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2618rc4mm2 root=/dev/md2 video=nvidiafb:1600x1200-32@85
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2618rc4mm2 root=/dev/md2 video=nvidiafb:1920x1440-32@85
There's no need to search for modes - just define what resolution you
want, what depth (32 bits) and what refresh rate.
By the way, even if you have a very large screen, a line length of about
72 characters is recommended, instead of your very long lines.
