Erm, well., maybe vesafb support is compiled in by default on the RH kernels. However, I'm still having problems. "vga=9" doesn't work for me. I look in /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/kernel-2.4.20/linux-2.4.20/Documentation/fb/vesafb.txt and see this table of values:

| 640x480 800x600 1024x768 1280x1024
256 | 0x301 0x303 0x305 0x307
32k | 0x310 0x313 0x316 0x319
64k | 0x311 0x314 0x317 0x31A
16M | 0x312 0x315 0x318 0x31B

None of these look like "9" to me. I tried some of the 640x480 and 800x600 modes, but neither of them seemed to fix my gettys problem. What am I missing?
