Can't use DRAC 5 card to deploy SBS2008 because resultion and refresh rate are too high.

Is there a way to remotely deploy server running SBS2008 with a DRAC 5 card? It seems the default resolution of SBS2008 is 1280x1024 at 85Hz, and the DRAC won't display above 1024x768 at 85Hz. Does anyone know of a way to drop the default resolution of the SBS2008 before going through the entire setup process?

According to MS, the 'proper' way to do a SBS2003 to SBS2008 migration is at the customer site with the new SBS on the network when it is first powered on, which I need to be able to do remotely.

The DRAC card has the latest firmware (1.4) and the server is a Dell PE2950. The only similar issue I could find on EE involved Linux:
