I have already compiled a 2.5.5 kernel and installed nVidia drivers
for FC2 (works great).  But I would like to have the 132x60 output on
my console during boot.  My question is should I have vga=all in my
grub.conf, or vga=780?  I am a little bit confused by your
instructions here.  Do the console properties show up on the grub boot
screen?  What other properties can you set?

Thanks for all the helpful info!

Kind Regards,
