       vga_claimvideomemory - declare the amount of video memory used


       #include <vga.h>

       int vga_claimvideomemory(int m);


       Declare  the  amount  of video memory in bytes that is to be saved when
       temporarily switching to textmode. Returns nonzero if the amount is not
       available.  Defaults  to one screen when a mode is set. Use this if you
       are using more than one screen of video memory.

       Occasionally this might be wrong. I hereby asked to be excused  by  the
