New text modes on SiS chipsets, info / docs wanted (Miscellaneous)

> I avoid SiS chips at all, because these are slow and crappy.

I agree. I have one SIS 6xxx PCI VGA that I bought because I need TV-out on a PCI. It was cheap but it is crap.

I cannot tell you anything to SIS but just idea how it works on nVidia BIOS. nVidia has defined some internal gfx and txt mode numbers that are supported by chip. Then there is a table that assigns VESA mode numbers to specific nVidia mode numbers. I you have a luck that chip supports the resolution you need but it is not in VESA mode table then it is possible to replace some unused VESA mode by mode that you need. But it is not simply task.

DOS gives me freedom to unlimited HW access.
