Hi Bruce,=20

I have tried that, this is what I got when I did step 3.

pc4-rdng4-6-cust108# dmesg | tail
sio1: port may not be enabled
vga0: <Generic ISA VGA> at port 0x3c0-0x3df iomem 0xa0000-0xbffff on =
Timecounters tick every 10.000 msec

logo_saver: the console does not support M_VGA_CG320
module_register_init: MOD_LOAD (logo_saver, 0xc1d9ebb0, 0) error 19

Any ideas? :)
