Fully in agreement with Daniel's statement. VGA is a standard for a reason. And
if a system provides VGA, and using it by spec doesn't work, then the hardware
can be easily blamed. The hardware should be providing what it needs in order
for standard VGA to work.

However, I still contend that since Windows works in a VGA context during
install phase, that the vga16fb driver is just not doing something. Whether the
Windows installer knows of some workaround outside of normal specs, or that the
vga16fb driver is broken, remains to be proven.
