Re: VESA mode programming from real mode

VBE 2.0 is superset of 1.2. Yes, there is LFB and the new protected mode banking interface for improved performance, but 1.x functions accessed using int 10 are still there. Chances are that if you target 8086 then you are unlikely to be dealing with 2.0 hardware anyway
