Hi all.

I boot my machines with syslinux. I noticed the screen turns white quite shortly before the kernel is loaded and video mode is changed. I'm curious as to know what causes this and if/how it can be avoided, i.e. have the screen go black instead. Or is it some side effect of using syslinux? (It happens regardless of whether syslinux shows a text or graphical boot menu.) IIRC it also happens with Grub 1 but then I'm not too sure.

nVidia. But I also see this happen with ATI cards and mode setting (on my laptop for instance).
