oh, well I just figured it'd be obvious that you specify your actual
network interface there. sorry.

Will's pretty sure now there's a bug in the code that converts the
anaconda syntax into the dracut syntax, so we think any attempt to use
anaconda syntax will fail as things stand.

I guess it just uses the first interface it finds. Glad it finally
worked.

I dunno whether that mode setting code has been at all updated for newer
X or KMS or whatever. No idea whether it's expected to work or broken or
what. I doubt you could force anaconda to use bigger fonts, unless you
somehow hack a DPI setting into the X config...
