    It simply isn't true that the vesafb driver has been removed or disabled. Nor
    is it true that the vga= video mode selection has been removed or is broken.

    I've been using vga=791, too, for years, and on 2.6.26 and 2.6.27 it continues
    to work as it always did.

    The OP needs to post his config before creating a fuss about removed features
    and "lack of choice". From what I can see, such statements simply aren't true.

    At worst there is a bug here on one particular system that needs to be fixed.
