VVESA.COM is a Terminate and Stay Resident (TSR) program. It is
ATI's implementation of the VESA Super VGA Standard V2.1(VS891001).
VVESA is not a driver. It is a program which enables your video
board to be used with VESA compatible software. Consult your
software manual or your software manufacturer's Technical Support
to see if a VESA driver is available for your software.
Install your software for VESA Super VGA. Then run VVESA before
running your VESA compatible software. If you prefer, a batch
file can be written to invoke VVESA and then your software. The
resident portion of VVESA consumes only 2256 bytes of memory. To
unload VVESA from memory, type VVESA OFF.
The following VESA modes are supported:
MODE RESOLUTION 256K 512K MEMORY
