Really, using some number that's close to, but /not/ equal to, zero is 
much better for /any/ video card, anyway.  (In this context, the range 
is 0-65535, so decide what close to means to you, but 1, 2, 10, 30, ... 
would all be fine.)  Unfortunately, though, people always say to use 0 
for some reason...
