because in most cases, the config tells me that if I'm not sure what
something is, it's safe to choose "Y" or "M". I'm not sure what a frame
buffer is for.
I'll try it without it.

because my motherboard uses a Via chipset
"cat /proc/pci | grep VIA" gives me:
Host bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8753 [P4X266 AGP] (rev 1).
PCI bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8633 [Apollo Pro266 AGP] (rev 0).
ISA bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8233A ISA Bridge (rev 0).
IDE interface: VIA Technologies, Inc.
VT82C586A/B/VT82C686/A/B/VT8233/A/C/VT8235 PIPC Bus Master IDE (rev 6).
USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. USB (rev 35).
USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. USB (#2) (rev 35).
I could be wrong - it's all a haze to me. I'll try without that as well.
