Some file in the SVGATextmode mentions it is not supported anymore,
one reason for that is that you can change resolution for the console
from the kernel (but, alas, only at boot time I gather) so just give
the 'vga=ask' parameter to the kernel at boot time to get a list of
available resolutions (check
/usr/src/kernel-source-2.4.4/Documentation/svga.txt (fill in your
kernel version)).
