Any other "fix" entails recompiling the Debian Kernel, e.g. in order to
install uvesfb you have to do that.

The last Debian kernel that ran with vga=791 was 2.6.24. So I did a diff
-y beteen that and 2.6.25 that does *not* allow vga=791. That file is here:

Scientists are people, too.  IOW, they also "crave power, money,
respect, and influence, and they also fear for their jobs. Each
can be a healthy motivator, but each has the ability to turn a
good scientist into a bad one; and in some cases, they can turn
a good scientist into a charlatan."
