[SW] View images in text mode (CLI)

I was just wondering how to view images in command line interface (CLI). So, I typed keywords to Google and find there is a package named ``fbi'' for this kind of purpose.

After installation, however, the fbi did not work in my Ubuntu. I removed it, and reinstalled again when I found the solution.
sudo vim /boot/grub/menu.lst
Search for ``defoptions=''
add the ``vga=791'' under the line of ``# defoptions=quiet splash''
search for ``/boot/vmlinuz''
add ``vga=791'' to the end of the line

That's funny, and that lets me do more works under text mode console. :-)
