Quake uses VESA Modi. If your card-BIOS does not support the desired mode try to install UNIVBE, general VESA driver. Your graphic card must be able to display the desired mode of course.
You should have VESA 2.0 installed.
What VESA modes do you have currently?

What VESA version has your card BIOS?
Installing a software vesa drive you must download UNIVBExx.ZIP from a internetsite (xx is version number, at least 51)
You can get it from:
ftp://ftp.simtel.net/pub/simtelnet/msdos/graphics/univbe51.zip

I think quake recognice vesa automatically. At least ther should be somethink about it in the readme of quake.
Most games include the univbe (or display doctor) on the CD.
