Can I find out the VGA chipset from dmesg or something? Anyhow, video
seems to work fine except for dbootstrap. I switched to the second VT
and got the prompt and was able to do a 'ps ax' which showed
dbootstrap running. I was hoping to be able to pass dbootstrap an
argument that would make it all better.
