Matrox & SVGA=

I installed 8.2 on a 80G HD for a VIA MVP3 chipset motherboard (K6/2)
with ET6x00 video and rtl8139 about 1.5 years ago. I never really used
that HD after that.

Today, I hooked that HD up to an i915P chipset motherboard (socket 775
P4) with G400 video. This is a board that includes IT8212F IDE as well
as ICH6 IDE & SATA, and rtl8169 eth0. It booted right up without a
whimper. Amazing! NIC and graphics didn't work initally, but sax2 & YaST
fixed those easily! Again amazing!

However, when I try to switch the VGA=788 line in grub's menu.lst to
VGA=791, I get an invalid video mode message. Does anyone using Matrox
know why this is, and if there's a simple way to get a little higher
resolution than 800x600 on the consoles?
