RE: ATI Rage 128

I have an ATI All-in-wonder 128 with the rage 128 chip.  If you roll your
own kernel try adding in CONFIG_FB_ATY128=y (under character devices ATI
Rage 128) and adding something along the lines of
append="video=aty128fb:1024x768@76" to lilo.  This will give you a decent
resolution.  Otherwise, put vga=ask in your lilo and follow the prompts to
figure out what to replace the "ask" with.  On another machine I use
vga=0x0314 to get a 800x600 display.
