Well, if I'm correct, Icaros (or AROS) during boot time uses framebuffer for diplaying text boot messages.
I made a third attempt using older hardware - apart of the problems with the framebuffer (still "mode not supported") it booted just fine, and I could play a bit, when graphics appeared. It was much older mobo ASRock K7-Upgrade600, with Radeon 9600Pro.
The conclusions are:
- at the moment new AROS kernel has poor support for nForce chipset
- it would be much better idea to use - for displaying text boot messages - the modes e.g. "copied" from Linux (say: the ones LILO allows). Never had problems with these. It's simply not worthy to pack a few letters more into line at a cost of making most monitors unsuitable.
