This keeps getting mentioned, but I'm not sure all the pieces are in
place. Yes, VESA 2.0 is "32-bit". Does that actually mean it's usable from
within Linux? More importantly, do _any_ cards have VESA 2.0 information
built into the ROM? I hope I don't need to point out that a DOS VESA TSR
(32-bit or not) is quite useless to Linux.
