Question Framebuffer on Gforce4 MX 440

I change my old TNT RIVA CARD for new Gforce4 MX 440 AGP8x 128M, my working old
system use a 1280x1024 framebufer for boot display and console, this work fine
with TNT, but at boot with new card, system said

You passed a undefined mode number
Press <RETURN> to see video modes avaible, <SPACE> to continue or wait 30
and boot without splash screen (text mode)

if framebuffer is > 800x600.
Under X no problem and work fine in 1280x1024.

kernel is 2.4.20-gentoo-r7
