You could try booting from the hard disk and editing the GRUB option
to append "vga=771" to the kernel line. If this works, edit the file
/boot/grub/menu.lst and add it to the end of the commented "kopt"
line. Then do a (if I remember correctly) dpkg --reconfigure grub and
it should update all the kernel lines with the specified vga option.
