There are two thing:
- RedHat 7.0 uses a version of LILO with a kind of GUI frontend to select your boot entry. If you want to specify options you still should escape to the LILO prompt. Check the docs for details.
- The little tux comes with the VGA framebuffer option as described below. If it compiled in the kernel, you can select the videomode using the video= kernel option or the LILO vga= option. Check /usr/src/linux/Documentation/fbdevice (or something close to that) for the available videomodes. There is a sepperate version of this doc for Matrox, allong with some extra kernel options.

in kernel configuration check framebuffer and recompile it
