Here is some more info.
I used dosemu to run MSD, and it reports VESA not enabled. This is not
a bios setup option. I tried .109 vanilla and it seemed to work. Tried
.110 and it seemed to work, but then I ran dosemu to check the screen
stuff and after that blanking etc. did not work again. I shut down X,
umounted my dos partition, rmmod -a until everything that removes did,
and blanking etc. returned to normal.
