It is to reserve an area in the address range (memory map) for a graphics card to use as a linear frame buffer, common locations for this are 14mb 32mb and 64mb, so for instance if you have 48mb of mem installed and your graphics card will only use an address at 14mb or 32mb, then you can use this bios setting to reserve space for it there and remap the system memory around it.

Can I post this as an answer or do you need to know more?
