Oh, now I realize that I forgot to mention that I've tried both attacks to the
problem. FB didn't work (don't ask me why, Not VESA 2.0 compliant?).
Nonethelesss, it didn't convince me really, for the same things yo say.. so,
doesn't matter.

Previsously I tried expansion passing on to lilo the argument vga=0x103,
which is the hex code of the video mode I would like for text, taken from the
BIOS test in which all the BIOS capable text modes are tried. It didn't work
either.

The only thing that I can think of solving the problem (no, not really a
_fundamental_ one ;), just that excruciating need of having *all* the hw of my
laptop 100% ;) is by using the tpctl modules of the kernel. I installed
tpctl-source and tpctl, compiled de sources with kernel package follwing the
instructions, and I get an 'unresolved symbol for thinkpad.o' when I do
moprobe thinkpad, so I haven't been able to use tpctl either...

So, If you all still have any ideas, they would be welcome..
