Best to edit /boot/grub/menu.lst by finding the defoptions line and
adding whatever vga=*** you want, which will automatically be added to
the kernel parameters when you update the kernel via your package
manager. An example below:

# defoptions=vga=773

Yes, keep that # there at the beginning of the line (on that section of
menu.lst, commenting out requires two hashes).

After doing that, run update-grub as root in a console, which will add
the defoptions to your default kernel parameters (this is done
automatically when you install a kernel using Debian package
