Hi list:

   i found that my vesa card cant be detected by the dom0 kernel and subsequently vesafb cant be brought up successfully, we do not mention X.org system here. Seems that it is caused by the absence of the video probing code, that originally packed in linux kernel (video.S).

   that code is 16-bit mode oriented, but not feat for dom0 booting up procedure. Do you think it is reasonable to past it on xen kernel?
