you need some thing like this in your
depending of your video-card support
#allscreens_flags="-m on VGA_80x30"
#allscreens_flags="-m on MODE_280"
allscreens_flags="-m on MODE_291"
your kernel need some thing like this:
I use a radeon, so change it to your card !
device vga # VGA video card driver
options VESA # VESA support
device acpi_video # LCD backlight/brightnes extention
device agp # support for AGP chipsets
device sc # Sytem-Console
device radeondrm # ATI Radeon RV100 Mobility LY M6 /
device splash # Splash screen and screen saver
options MAXCONS=9 # Max-No. of virtual terminals
options SC_PIXEL_MODE # raster text mode
VESA_800x600, MODE_280, MODE_291
