Can't set resolution for console

I'm using Sid with AIW Radeon, kernel 2.6.9 compiled with frame buffer support 
and want to change the text mode resolution. I've tried in grub to pass 
kernel parameter vga=791, but after the grub menu is listed and the kernel 
begins to load,  the screen blanks until the kdm starts. Another try was to 
set vga=ext, that has some effect: after grub menu is listed, the kernel 
begins to load and the resolution is changed properly, but while the system 
loads, at a moment the resolution is changed back to 80x25 before kdm starts.

How should I handle it?
