An acceptable resolution is VESA_800x600 (I do not think that the kernel can
do mor at the moment?). To enable it you have to tecompile your kernel with
option SC_OIXEL_MODE enabled (so you can use the raster text mode).
Then load the vesa support with kldload vesa and try
"vidconrtol -g 100x37 VESA_800x600".
If it is o.k. for you put in your /etc/rc.conf file:
allscreens_flags="-g 100x37 VESA_800x600"
and add to /boot/loader.conf:
vesa_load="YES" to load the vesa module at startup.
... don't touch the bang bang fruit
