You can not use unicode in hardware textmode, the reason why is because characters are stored as 8 bit bytes, so they can only be less than 256. However there are ANSII block characters. I think this chart is pretty good, just cast a byte to a char.

Oh thank you, thank you very much, it works!

P.S.: Oh yes, just a little question, how do I download GruntyOS Infinity ?

When I go on "http://infinity.gruntxproductions.net/" it redirect me on "http://www.gruntxproductions.net/infinity.php" and give me a 404 error.
