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          drm
device          agp             # support for AGP chipsets
device          sc              # Sytem-Console
device          radeondrm       # ATI Radeon RV100 Mobility LY M6 /
AGP chipset
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
options         CONSPEED=115200
#options                SC_NORM_ATTR=(FG_WHITE|BG_BLACK)
#options                SC_NORM_REV_ATTR=(FG_BLACK|BG_WHITE)

read every "man"-page around the "vidcontrol" feature,
use my settings only as a sample

good luck
