Enabling the framebuffer

To enable the framebuffer for high resolution text consoles (eg when your system is booting up), edit your /boot/grub/menu.lst file, and find a section that looks like this:

title   Ubuntu 7.10, kernel 2.6.22-14-generic
root    (hd0,0)
kernel    /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22-14-generic root=UUID=fa696915-5ca5-4629-a3ee-296c7e382e2d ro quiet splash
initrd    /boot/initrd.img-2.6.22-14-generic
quiet

Add vga=791 to the end of the line that begins with kernel, so it looks like this:

kernel    /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22-14-generic root=UUID=fa696915-5ca5-4629-a3ee-296c7e382e2d ro quiet vga=791

I usually take out the splash directive so I can actually see all the pretty high resolution text (and figure out what went wrong if something did).
