I get a message like that while booting, it says video mode has not been defined or something, and then says to press spacebar or wait 30 seconds, and then boots normally. Hm? Which video mode do I set, they're listed in weird format something like

8xjas ::: 8xhabl

if I can remember right.

Actually it was prompting me to select the rows and column for the command line, I set it to b, except I have a small moniter so the text is microscopic, I want it back to normal! =P

Uelsk8s meant:
/sbin/vliloconf

You can also get there by using
vasm > filesystem > lilo
