Puzzling VT resolution

I have installed Gutsy on a couple different partitions on my Dell Inspiron 
1100, and in both cases the installation seems to activate the frame buffer 
and I am looking at a not-quite-full screen installation dialog.

Once the system is installed, the KDE desktop comes up on 1024x768 as it 
should,  and my VT is down to 640x480.  I have tried various kernel 
parameters --i.e., vga=791 (errors out); vesa=0x317 (no change); vesa=0x324 
(errors out)-- vga=771 is SUPPOSED to be 800x600 but, though not erroring 
out, is being ignored.

My hdwe is as follows:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE 
Chipset Integrated Graphics Device (rev 03)

Anyone with this same hdwe find a solution?
