 CH> Does anyone know how to shift into a non-standed video mode, like

Call interrupt 10h function 00h with AL set to the desired
mode.  For example, on my SuperVGA, 800x600x16 is mode 29h.
 So setting it would be:

     DIM InRegs AS RegTypeX
     InRegs.AX = &H29
     CALL InterruptX(&H10,InRegs,InRegs)

Note that BASIC still doesn't know that it is in a graphics mode and thus
none of the graphics stuff will work.  You must either use
PEEK/POKE or other Int 10h functions in order to get
anything onto the screen.
