My ALT Linux Junior 2 boot in extended text video mode.
As I understand, this is done by passing the parameter to kernel 

Unfortunately the refresh rate in that mode is only 60Hz, and this is totally 
unacceptable - I need 85+.
Where should I do that tuning? 

BTW: When I will tune my system up, I will probably be able to write 
some apps to make such tuning  easier to others. Either 
usingGCC+GNOME, or Kylix(C++)...  If Alt Linux Team
 will want that such apps to appear somewhЕre in AL 2.4, of course.
