As a follow-up to my post last week about changing monitors from a
Sylvania F76 to a Viewsonic VG151b flat panel monitor.
 
I've made the switch, but now every so often the flat panel monitor
displays a message:
 
"For Best Picture Quality, Change the Resolution to 1024x768"
 
I'm currently running at 80x25, and the monitor is showing the
resolution as 720x400.
 
Is there a way to get my Linux console to run at 1024x768?  I've tried
SVGATextMode, but that didn't seem to help, unless I did something
wrong.
 
Thanks, Rick
