You can always try to kldload vesa.ko at boot time and then experiment
with VESA 800x600 modes:
# vidcontrol -g 100x37 VESA_800x600
Someone was working on improved VESA support for the FreeBSD console.
The last time I checked the patch that floated around the -current
mailing list, it supported 800x600 modes, 1024x768, even 1280x1024 on
Then, there's always X11 :-)
