This worked. Thank you.

However, if there is no vga=NNN line in lilo.conf, where is the system
getting the frame buffer info?

I noticed that after an install of SuSE 9.x, the screen resolution is
whatever resolution you installed at. Where else is the frame
buffer/resolution setting located?

Thanks again,
