    Terminal Resolution

    Hi,
    how do you change the the resolution of a tty? I have tried to do this by adding the boot option
    Code:
    vga=791
    but it does not work. I want to change the resolution so I can run twin(http://linuz.sns.it/~max/twin/).
    Any ideas?

    You are trying to do it the correct way. There is a good howto - HOWTO: Change bootup resolution.

    You could check that the mode is available on your graphics card. See post #22 in the link.
