Of course mono monitor (as well as any color monitor) could support, say,
376x564x256 just fine. Problem is that messages obviously written to be read!
Just now I am unable use Lynx with my mono monitor without retuning since
default Lynx configuration from RedHat 5.0 use the same colours for normal text
and for links. Such problem is bad enough for Lynx but it's will be even worse
for kernel :-((
