lspci gives :
Intel Corp 82845G/GL [Brookdale-G]/GE/PE dram controller host-hub interface (rev01).
00:02.0 vga compatible controller ...rest same as above.
Also startup choices are in "cols and rows" instead of familiar 800x600 1028x768 etc.
Edit: tried vga=788 without success.
"Setup/xvesa" shows only choice is 640x480x16.
Finally got the correct colors. Booted "dsl vga=normal base etc.." but am limited to 640x480 16.
Edit: 12/20/08 images still too large. Found out I need to install xorg and dep files. Will attempt over the holidays.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all.
