vga16fb console settings

I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro 410CDT and I compiles a 2.4.19 kernel
that included the VESA and VGA16 Framebuffer support.  The VESAFB
doesn't load at boot (perhaps the VESA on the PC is too old), but the
vga16fb loads fine.  However, it loads a 640x480 box inside an 800x600
display.  I can use "fbset -g 800 600 800 600 4" to make the console a
full 800x600 display that is very nice.  However, I can't figure out
how to make this fbset change permanent.  Upon reboot, it goes back to
the 640x480 display.  Also, I have to run the the fbset command on
each tty console.

Any suggestions?
