Just to make it clear, I set vgat=0x0317 as lilo parameter.
You are talking about a kernerl parameter.

Nevertheless I tried it. I commented every vga entry out in the lilo.conf and 
added your suggeston to the append line for the kernel. Unfortunatelly this 
doesen't solve the problem. I'm still having a punk Tux!

But I like the big resolution at the console. Do you know how I can change the 
display frequency at the console? 60Hz aren't the very good for my eyes. =)

Bye, Christian
