One could include in Debian Live a failsafe (
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Failsafe ) videocard and screen by default .
I.e. after trying the videocard and screen, the script could ask : Is the
screen OK ?. If the answer is no or there is no answer in a certain number
of seconds, the script could ask : Do you want to use the failsafe option ?
Yes / No.
