I tried to get a vesa working with a Radeon X1900 and the screen
resolution is rather poor.  I certainly cannot seem to get it at
1600x1200 which is what I am used to.  See my previous post if you think
you can improve on that.

I can live without fancy GL screen savers but having a tiny screen is
rather irritating.
