Setup 25 - Configure LILO to use frame buffer console

Here is an options if you would like to use frame buffer console during the Linux boot process. If you enable this in /etc/lilo.conf, it will allow more rows and columns of text on the screen and give you a cool penguin logo at boot time.

Don't worry about video card and monitor support if you use nowadays computer. If your computer supports Windows before, than it should be no problem for just a Linux text console. You should have your monitor resolution in pre-configuration checklist. If not, you can refer to the monitor manual documentation.
