Maybe I'm thinking of the wrong combination.  We have lots of HP
Proliant hardware without the Advanced ILO license.  This means they can
only do text remote console; no VGA, no text with fb.  Because of this,
we've generalized our install process to include "nofb" across the board
(except for workstation installs which use full GUI).

I believe nofb and vnc are mutually exclusive, correct?  Or is it that
VNC and local console are mutually exclusive?  I haven't really messed
with VNC that much because of perceived limitations.

Thanks for the quick replies today  :)
