Those were introduced by Chris Gianelloni:

Quote:

"""
s/you have to add a vga- or video-statement to your bootloader
configuration file if you require framebuffer. The former is for 2.4
kernels while you should use the latter for 2.6 kernels./you have to add
a vga-statement to your bootloader configuration file if you wish to use
framebuffer./

s/For the video-statement, a simplified syntax is used. Most of the time
it's sufficient to use video=vesafb./If you are using a 2.6 kernel and
chose to use vesafb-tng, then you will use a video-statement instead.
The video statement is defined by WxH-D <at> Hz, or 1024x768-16 <at> 60./

Perhaps another table could be added for this, I'm not sure.  That's
totally up to you guys.  It should be noted that the vesafb-tng stuff is
only in the gentoo-dev-sources kernel and only in kernel >=2.6.8 at
that.
