Framebuffer console help. Screen switches to highres black screen and underline cursor.
I posted this the other day but feel it might have been lost as sunday evenings are not the best time to post it seems...
Is there a step-by-step FAQ/Howto on this that someone has tried and knows works?
If it matters, I am using an LCD display that does 1280x1024. Gnome/X works just fine, even with Compiz, so the LCD can certainly handle the higher resolution than 80x25 or whatever a console is by default.

I'm trying to set a 1280x1024 frame buffer console on my 8.10 server:
When I do "vga=ask" the mode says "31B", but this page says "791"
Either one causes the screen to go high-resolution, blank and just a little "_" in the top left corner.
It never recovers, yet the server is booted as I can ssh into it and the web/mysql/mail/etc are all working.
What am I doing wrong? This is on an Intel mobo with built in graphics (however, I do get Compiz working just fine in X/Gnome)
