This is what I have figured out so far if you know the codes for the settings where there are question marks(?) please PM me and I will update this list. Hopefully someone fines it and feels its useful. I always wondered about it with my computers being setup with GRUB's VGA modes.


Width-Height-Depth	VGA Codes	HEX Codes
80x25 (TEXT)		3840		0F00

80x43 (TEXT)		3842		0F02
80x28 (TEXT)		3843		0F03
80x30 (TEXT)

But there's a problem; there's a spider living under the central heating pump! I cannot stand the things, and this one is about 2 inch from stem to stern.
