This may well be a hardware issue.

I compiled the kernel 2.1.111 with the vesafb option enabled. I can now
select some graphic modes (640x480, 1024x768) at boot time.

My question is : How dose it come that I can't get the intermediate
resolution 800x600 ? All I get is a messed up screen. The machine dosen't
get freezed, I can blindly start X.

The graphic card used is S3 VIRGE/DX 4Mb. The monitor is an old SVGA. I
can get all the three resolutoins mentioned above under XFree86.
