Some videocards have the option in the BIOS.

I think it uses some of the physical memory that's installed to deal with this. Depending on how much ram/memory you change it to in the BIOS.
And how much physical memory is installed in your system.

yep.

this option should be in bios. haven't dealt with onboard graphics for sometime and choose not to :P. i think it is under "advanced chipset features" in bios.

you should be able to allocate somewhere between 8 to 32 MB of Video RAM.
