Replace the "splash" with "vga=795". That will show boot messages on the
screen using the framebuffer device. The resolutions are:
786 - 640x480
789 - 800x600
792 - 1024x768
795 - 1280x1024
799 - 1600x1200
so vga=795 gives me a nice 1280x1024 text on my 1680x1050 monitor.
Personally I like seeing every message so I also remove the "quiet" command.
Hope that helps.
