Mmhh, Offset 2 from mvspd_15.rom is 7D
Offset 2 from a newer vga_bios.rom is 76
these are the correct values for the file sizes (Offset 2 * 512) after I
extract they from the orginal Bios with award bios editor.
firstvga.rom is 64000 (7D * 512 = 64000)
secondvga.rom is 60416 (76 * 512 = 60416)
with LinuxBios I use the firstvga.rom, because of the newer ones don't
work with Linuxbios ( could be vgabios.c the reason? ), but after
filling the file size is 65536
So I thought, I must set the Offset 2 to 80
(80 * 512 = 65536) and all will went fine with X (I hope so).
However, it does not work ;)
Unfortunatly I get different checksums, always if I reboot.
I don't no why, I use the same bios and the same configuration for the
rest and get different checksums, that should be inpossible.
