80x25 256 color?


I'm a Nethack gamer, and I'd like to be able to run a regular 80x25 console with 256 colors instead of 16. Is there a way to do this, perhaps with the vga= at the boot prompt? Thanks

My mistake, Nethack is the same amount of colors as on XP, the colors are just slightly different shades.
