Virtually every distro I've tried (usually a LiveCD), whether it will install or not, shows an immediate message on boot of:
You passed an undefined mode number. Press enter to choose, or spacebar/30 seconds to continue.
Selecting mode 0 (80 x 25) resolves the problem sometimes, but this seems to be a default DOS resolution, isn't it?
Any advice/suggestions would be appreciated, as I think most of my problems with virtually all distros are linked to this.
