what is the video=ofonly kernel argument



Hi!

after several weeks of trial and error I finally have a running woody
system on my 9600 Powermac! Yay! (Well - I didn't spend ALL my time on
this project, to be honest :)

Thanks to everybody who helped me along the way during the last couple
of months!

I finally got the console to work using the "video=ofonly" kernel
arguments.
But what do they mean? I tried to figure it out looking at the fb/*
sources, but they are a bit beyond my humble capabilities. Can it be
explained to someone as ignorant as me?

The next thing is setting up X, but I will start that tomorrow...

Thanks one more,
