There has been plenty of discussion about this over on the linux kernel
development lists. In general, it's easy to do for any specific
hardware configuration, (Intel with VGA is all Win95 supports) but
no way to do it across platforms. Maybe if/when the KGI/GGI stuff makes
it into the kernel, this capability will be added.
If this is important for your application, someone has probably written
a kernel patch.
