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.
