`video=amifb:ntsc-lace' (or just `video=ntsc-lace') should work.
BUT, while looking this up to be 100% sure, I found there's a bug in the
ami_modedb entry for that mode. The vertical resolution is missing, so it
won't work :-(
Time to convert it to C99 initializers... In the mean time, try this patch, it
should apply to almost anything:
