Help text

STI refers to the HP "Standard Text Interface" which is a set of BIOS routines contained in a ROM chip in HP PA-RISC based machines. Enabling this option will give you an 8 color text console on most of the PA-RISC systems. Really old HP boxes may not have STI, in which case you must use the PDC console or your primary serial port as a console.

The text console uses a strange memory layout, and changing the plane mask to create colored characters requires calls to the STI routines. Because of that do not expect it to be actually very fast, but it is sufficient for basic text console functions, including fonts.

The alternative is to use your primary serial port as a console.

It is safe to enable this option, so you should probably say "Y".
