Hi Jonas.

It seems I'd never used any SVGAlib based program before... I tried a
simple fractal program, from the SVGALib site and - the system crashed

So, I checked around and did _not_ find my SiS300 based card in the
supported card list. I then uncommented the 'vesa' line in the 
/etc/vga/libvga.config file, and all is working now. I suppose the
VESA mode may not be the optimun solution, but at least I can see
the graphics.

I'm supposing that the Graph unit is also based on SVGAlib...

Thanks Jonas,
