Why be concerned about the monitor. I thought this was going to take a
minimalist approach. Using one of the lower quality modes should fit the
bill for all monitors. I wasn't thinking 1280x1024x24bpp here... more
like 320x200x16 at best. That VAST majority of monitors should be able to
support that. And the ones that aren't will probably not be hooked up to
a video card capable of that mode anyways (mono, herc, etc).
