Are you sure you card supports 32 bit modes? Allegro can only use what
resolutions the VESA driver provides: use the VESAINFO test program to
check what is available on your system. Allegro should be able to use
any of the truecolor modes from that list: if there are any that it
fails to set, something is wrong with my code and I'd like to see a copy
of the VESAINFO output...
