Display resolution when booting

The display resolution is very low by default when booting up my debian.  Longer boot messages appeared in two lines, making it very untidy.  I want something like Knoppix.  It has a high display resolution when booting and every boot message appear in its own line.

Today, I found a solution here: http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?t=31591&highlight=&sid=f22e52d26376196861f7f69ebedb0439

1. Install a hardware detection tool:
aptitude install hwinfo

2. Find out supported display resolution:
hwinfo --vbe | grep Mode

3. Edit /boot/grub/menu.lst to include the display resolution:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.26-1-686 root=/dev/sda6 ro vga=0x0360

4. Reboot and see the difference.
