Ok this is a bit late but I've just managed to get full screen with X
and now I'm starting to look at the same for text mode.
I remember reading somewhere that the following option:
should be set to 'n' otherwise any vga=xxx will not last and the kernel
will be set to it's default.
This is untested (by me) but is certainly worth playing around with.
Oh, the kernel I got those options from: config-2.4.18-bf2.4
I would be trying it myself, but and I think its a big but
I have a 133Mhz laptop with 49M RAM and a HD with 148M free and that's
