You can set the display resolution at boot time using the 'vga' kernel parameter from the kernel boot line.

Just append "vga=xxx" to the end of the kernel bootline in /boot/grub/grub.conf where "xxx" corresponds to the resolution and colour depth desired. See here for a list of codes:

Is that what you are looking for?
