Yes, it should match your actual resolution.

You could append the option in the second stage boot loader.  Instead of
letting yaboot default to "Linux" you could manually enter

	Linux video=radeonfb:1440x900-32

if that gets you running then you could make the changes permanent in

	append="quiet splash video=radeonfb:1440x900-32"

and then run ybin to set them

	sudo ybin -v

That's beyond my skill but a look at the output from 'lsmod' does not
show any modules with for radeon or fb.
