// Menuconfig is even worse. It displays an asterisk in front of VGA... section
// and after I enter and leave character devices submenu the VGA... submenu is
// gone. And when it's not gone yet, I can't enter it anyway.
// But when compiled, it works for me (except some known problems with vgacon).

Speaking of which, I must have missed the digest where this was spoken
about, but what was the severity of those problems with vgacon? I'm
getting the ever popular black-on-black text with a Trio64 and remember
the error reports but dont recall what was resolved about how serious a
problem it was or when a fix would be available. No rush or anything,
I'm just curious =) Keep up the good work guys.
