For the record, I found the "bits" I needed - pun intended - in the C-language sources of the Linux kernel driver for SiS chipsets (by Thomas Winischhofer : http://www.winischhofer.net/sis/)

With the knowledge, it was a piece of cake to setup a 40 MHz Vclock and get
at modes with 132 chars per line as well as many others. The program you pointed to, SVGATextMode helped much in trying and testing the modes. Now I can write own tiny programs that shall set up only the modes I want :-)

Thanks !
