Subject: .grd's and the lack thereof

Okay here's the thing.. My programs can go into and properly function
in high res gfx mode without any djgpp-related environment variables
(go32, djgpp, go32tmp, etc). I was just wondering if this is the case
with all systems, or if my system is just wierd. If it'll work on any
system, why are the .grd's needed at all? And if my system is wierd,
how so?

I'm running a 486/66 dx2, 16 megs ram, Tandy VGA monitor (actual model
number in case it matters is VGM-220), with a Tandy VESA-compatible
video card. No, the CPU is not actually a Tandy, just the screen,
video card, and keyboard.. it's a long story.
