silly question

when using the frame buffer option within lilo, how do i get the tux icon to either stay or at least come back after the monitor has gone off?

do you mean at boot time? You can add the vga=nnn to your lilo.conf. nnn can be a value like 788

No. He means how Tux disappears after using a full screen app like vim.. And it never comes back til you reboot.

That always bothered me a bit, but never enough to explore ways to get it back, or keep it from disappearing to begin with.
I know that the graphic has been known to create problems with the buffer -- like when Tux is visible, and you use less to look over a file -- scrolling back up scrambles it up a bit -- maybe you lose him as a fix when you open some full-screen console apps.

Yah it would be nice if tux could stay in the console
