Increasing videoRam beyond the one in the video card


I'd like to know if there's a way to increase the video memory, beyond
the one included in the video card, using the main memory ram.  I
thought I could use videoRam with xorg.conf, but I couldn't, and when
I read the man page, it seems that one can't use it for that purpose.
I think one possibility is to provide a boot parameter or something so
that we can borrow ram from main memory to video, or maybe that can be
done instead with some Xorg configuration applying only for X of

I'd like to see if I have a possibility with any ony of the ways (if
this can be managed at boot by the kernel, that'd be great).  So
please provide any suggestions you can come up with.
