silly question did you run update-grub

That would not do anything usefull and may harm if you update the menu.lst file by hand. update-grub is used to update that file, and will overwrite anything added by hand.

The vga kernel parameter is a bit illogical. vga=ask will give you a list of possible modes. This is done using two numbers, one is the selection number, the other one is the mode as it is known to the VGA BIOS. The one you want is the selection number, not the mode (0F07 was the mode) Then replace the "ask" with that number.
