Default Re: [5900xt] text modes

vga=771 gives a F R A M E B U F F E R console in 800x600 - this is an emulation of a text mode in graphics mode. i do _not_ want to use framebuffer.

i do want to put in lilo sth like vga=9 which would give me REAL text mode like 132 columns per 43 lines. _pure_ text mode.
this is much much faster with a much smaller kernel.
