here is what I found
         Just use vga=ask for the first time,
   **  enter `scan' on the video mode prompt, pick the mode you want to use,
   **  remember its mode ID (the four-digit hexadecimal number) and then
   **  set the vga parameter to this number (converted to decimal first).
and vga=291 looks cool on my screen.

Read Documentation/svga.txt for more information.

Thanks 2 all,
