i think to had said a beastiality!!! (pardon moi)
all monitor implements something called preset(s) and recall the
same parameter for each video mode.... but....
i rebooted from mac os9 in 1024x768 and open firmware entered
in 1024x768 mode.... so i try to reboot from mos os 9 in 640x480
and open firmware entered in 640x480!!!
i believe that the smartest way to make this is to save the video mode
in nvram... for the video setting i have some doubt :(
