I use 0.97-os.1, took it from the demo CD AFAIR. The CVS version is  
quite uncompilable, but if there is interest I can submit the bugs here.

This is the last message (on serial), while the Qemu screen is black  
and empty (it does change its size, so I guess vbeset works, and the  
failure is in L4/Fiasco somewhere)

l4con works nicely however (with its --vbemode), there are  
screenshots on my site about that (http://www.gabucino.be/).
