I'm not sure it's worth the effort as it requires relatively complex
assembly code in arch/i386/boot/video.S (remember this code runs in real mode)
and there are lots of DOS programs you can use to get a detailed listing of
video modes and just give Linux the mode number directly.

Have a nice fortnight
