	I had better luck with 800x600. Sounds silly, I know, but that's the way it is

	Also, running fbset to spit out the mode doesn't work as well as it looks like
it does. I find it tends to forget stuff. 

	Here's what i put in my fb.modes: 

mode "ntsc-800x600"
    geometry 800 600 800 600 32
    timings 39721 48 24 80 32 40 2
    hsync high
    accel true
    double false
