It means that you need to set video mode at boot time

In that line, I think, you need to add extra parameter "vga=". I'm using
"vga=791", which means 1024x768, 16bit. Set it in /boot/grub/menu.lst. My
looks like this:

kernel          /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-4-686 root=/dev/hda6 ro vga=791

do you use an intelfb? or ati? the question is, is the above a "suggestion"
or "do it, i do it my self like this"?

My graphic card is ati. This line, is a copy of my configuration, so this exactly what I'm using.
