haven't tried it myself. I'm not going to de-install lilo and install
grub2 to find out.

I've succesfully used that method to set the screen mode on several
Debian Squeeze computers with grub2. That method is currently the only
real way, as there is not a clean way to configure gfxpayload yet. (You
have to manually patch the Grub scripts, because it hasn't been applied
it to the version which Debian ships.)
