problem with text durring startup

Posted by loupgarou21 on Dec. 22 2003,21:49I did a hd install, now when I start up the text runs off the screen, making it hard to tell when to enter things like, my login.
When running off the CD I could fix this by adding startup the option:
fb800x600 (I'm pretty sure that was it)
but I can't do that when booting off the hard drive
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Posted by Modrak on Jan. 17 2004,20:30vga=751 :-) will make you fb800x600x8bit
vga=0 will make you standard 80x25 textmode
