You might find that svgatextmode is what you're looking for. It can be a
bit of an ordeal to set up, but it gives a lot more control than the
lilo vga thingy. Just be sure to read all the documentation, as you can
mess your terminal up if you get it wrong (I did!).

Once it works it's _very_ nice though.
