you need to confirm that int #5 is a VSA interrupt of some sort. 

What I would recommend to make debugging easier is to use the "testbios" 
program to do the VGA support first. Once that is working, you can see how 
to make vgabios work. What makes this easier is that you can run testbios 
under linux.
