    I boot with vga=0x343 (1400x1050) and its working fine (2.6.0-test1)

    This is a Dell Latitude C610 laptop, so it may be using the ati framebuffer
    stuff, although I get this in dmesg:

    vesafb: framebuffer at 0xe0000000, mapped to 0xd8800000, size 16384k
    vesafb: mode is 1400x1050x24, linelength=4200, pages=2
    vesafb: protected mode interface info at c000:5378
    vesafb: scrolling: redraw
    vesafb: directcolor: size=0:8:8:8, shift=0:16:8:0
    fb0: VESA VGA frame buffer device
    Console: switching to colour frame buffer device 175x65
