1024x768 Resolution in console?

Hello list,

I've posted this question before, and I've had some good tips on where to look 
for the right answer.  I started with man pages for syscons, vidcontrol, and 
others.  I can't figure it out.  I've been toying with this for quite a 
while, but I'm failing.  Apparently, there's a way to get a splash screen at 
boot with a resolution of 1024x768, but I can't figure that out, either.

If anyone's willing to be a little more specific on where to go for the 
answers, I'd greatly appreciate it!

This is for a Compaq Presario 2100 (laptop).  My beef is that my console only 
takes up a small section of the screen (although X is full screen).  I know 
some laptops have a 'stretch' capability, but, alas, I was a cheap bastard, 
and this one does not.
