First configure the size and colour depth of your frame buffer, from the HP's
boot menu, then write number those down.  Boot Debian.  Once you're on console,
configure X to use the frame buffer device, at the EXACT SAME screen size and
colour depths.  Remember to also match your monitor settings to those.
