https://bbs.archlinux.org – Thanks that works perfectly.Just to clarify, in case others are interested, I modified a stanza in /boot/syslinux/syslinux.cfg, shown below, to prevent the module from loading. I then reran the command syslinux-install_update -iam which I'm not sure is necessary but it didn't hurt. Now I can boot Arch while staying in 80-character text mode without VNC. Thanks!LABEL arch MENU LABEL Arch Linux LINUX ../vmlinuz-linux APPEND root=/dev/sda3 ro modprobe.blacklist=cirrus INITRD ../initramfs-linux.img (HowTos)
