I get this error message on boot up, "Unidentified Video Mode Number"  If I hit the space bar everything works ok.

Vector Linux 6.0

I tried changing the vga= in lilo.conf if no change.

How do I fix this?

I would run vliloconf as root and pick a lower resolution for lilo bootsplash, disabling bootsplashwould be the safest, you should be able to get it working by playing with the lilo bootsplash options.

I have this issue with the compaq computers using dynamic ram for on board graphics - its the I810 graphics chip.  I found that I just had to skip through the error message and it boots fine.

use vga=normal in your /etc/lilo.conf then run "lilo" in a terminal as root

Your video should not look all that great during boot, but it'll skip the error Wink
