Help text

This enables support for text mode selection on kernel startup. If you want to take advantage of some high-resolution text mode your card's BIOS offers, but the traditional Linux utilities like SVGATextMode don't, you can say Y here and set the mode using the "vga=" option from your boot loader (lilo or loadlin) or set "vga=ask" which brings up a video mode menu on kernel startup. (Try "man bootparam" or see the documentation of your boot loader about how to pass options to the kernel.)

Read the file Documentation/svga.txt for more information about the Video mode selection support. If unsure, say N.
