What's the "vga=*" number to set the framebuffer to 640x480 16 colors? (not "vga=vga16", because that only works on a Amiga platform, not a PC)...

    Here you go, all the available vga modes.
    Code:
    colour depth     | 640x480  800x600  1024x768 1280x1024
    256        (8bit)|  769      771       773      775
    32000     (15bit)|  784      787       790      793
    65000     (16bit)|  785      788       791      794
    16.7 Mill.(24bit)|  786      789       792      795
    Use each number as e.g, vga=769, that will give you the desired mode you're looking for, once you choose the right one.
