Oh that would be nice!!! When I boot my EPIA It annoys me that the text
mode shows up. I already patched the original VIA bios to change the
boot graphic but it's very limited in terms of colours available etc. as
it has to fit into a very small place and the text mode always shows up
when doing it's DHCP boot.

Does suspend/resume work nicely with this setup too?
