I have a rather strange problem here.
When i was using gentoo, I could put
in my lilo.conf and make the necessary  changes to  the kernel  config and 
end up with a 132 by 43 screen. However, when I try the same thing in 
debian, I get using dmesg that my resolution has indeed changed but when I 
run "more" for instance I actually appear to be getting a couple lines 
less than I got with
Is there some other application running in debian unstable that may be 
preventing me from getting the benefit of the vga=8 useage.
thank you.
