Lightbulb Poll: VDPAU, turbocache and *integrated* graphics

NOTE: Please read the UPDATE at the end of this post.

This is a question for all users of integrated graphics chips (**NOT** plugin cards) and VDPAU.

I'd like to know:
a) Does your BIOS allow configuration of the amount of "graphics" RAM available to your GPU.
b) If so, which options are available (e.g. possibly 32, 64, 128, 256, ...) If not, do you know how much is statically allocated to the GPU?

Thanks very much.

P.S. I'd like to keep this thread clean and simple for me to read so that I can easily collect and interpret the data. PLEASE no discussion of why/when/... or unrelated issues. Just list the answer to the questions. Thank you! Of course, if people are having trouble working out how to obtain that information from the BIOS, that's fair game to ask questions about.

UPDATE:

Thanks for the responses. I believe I've received enough now. However, if you have an IGP, and you can't set the carveout to at least 128MB, then I'd still be interested in knowing that. Thanks.
