Something you might want to try first is to use fbset to get modelines if
you're using an accelerated console driver, like so:

# fbset 640x480-75
# fbset -x
[outputs xfree modeline entry]

# fbset 800x600-75
# fbset -x
[outputs another xfree modeline entry]

Just copy and paste them into your XF86Config file.

Now, I think this only works if you have an accelerated console driver

Good luck,
