An acceptable resolution is VESA_800x600 (I do not think that the kernel can do more at the moment?). To enable it you have to recompile your kernel with option SC_PIXEL_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.
