Thomas> noboot requires the full (long) VESA configuration strings.

Even if noboot can not use the VESA mode numbers,
knowing which modes your hardware supports might 
help.  BootMan should tell you.

"7. Bootmanager
To install the Bluebottle boot manager :
Partitions.WriteMBR dev#0 BootManMBR.Bin ~
Partitions.FileToPartition dev#0 BootManRest.Bin 1 9 ~ "

Once you find a candidate mode, you will need 
documentation or help from someone who knows 
---not me---to make the VESA string.
