Ok....I think this has been my 1st edits to lilo config so I was not aware of that little tidbit, so thanks, I'll definitely keep it in mind now. Of course it introduces a slightly new problem.
Currently, it prompts me for which mode I would like where I can enter in numbers 0-6 which indicate different colsXrows settings. I tried uncommenting one of the modes in lilo.conf and it gives me an "undefined mode number" and it defaults into asking me instead. Is the mode I am uncommenting out of the range or something? I have a 21" CRT monitor and the video controller is just a standard Intel 810 I believe. To be honest, overall resolution is not a big thing to me since I run this machine text mode, but I would like to set a default setting (in lilo if I can) for a colsXrows settings. The default one is nice and big but I have times where viewing a little more would be nice...especially since my monitor is big. Any ideas?
