Debian Sarge on IBM X40 howto - Part 3: Enable framebuffer

The IBM X40 seems to like using framebuffer so might find it usefull to put the following in you grub /boot/grub/menu.lst

# kopt=root=/dev/hda3 ro vga=771

Notice the vga=771

Whenever you install a new kernel and grub-update is run the “vga=771” will automatically be appended to every entry in the menu.lst Now you don’t have to enter it manualy everytime you install a new kernel.
