It varies.  Here's a chart

    MONO TEXT MODE        &HB000
    COLOR TEXT            &HB800
    CGA MODES             &HB800
    EGA MODES 7 & 8       &HB800
    EGA MODE 9            &HA000
    VGA MODES 12, 13      &HA000

Also depends on the screen mode.  With EGA and VGA you have to save all four
bit-planes individually.  It requires some OUTs and stuff.
I don't have the code right off hand.  Send a message to
all, and someone will tell you.
