What is video palette snooping and is it off by default? What is the purpose for that in the CMOS setting on the Intel BI440ZX motherboard?

Video Palette snooping is a feature used primarily by older ISA video cards that had a "vga feature" connector, for video capture or windows features. Pretty much non-existent in new stuff.

I would recommend leavng this cmos setting off, but I doubt it would hurt anything to leave it on.

Some graphic controllers(old) which are not VGA compatible, take the output from a VGA controller and map it to their display as a way to provide the boot information and VGA compatiblity.

this option is only useful if you use an mpeg card or an add-in card thatmakes use of the graphics card's feature connector.It corrects incorrect color reproduction by "snooping" into the card's frame buffer memory and modifying (synchronizing) the information delivered from the graphics card feature connector to the mpeg or add-in card. it will also solve the problem of displainversion to a black screen after using an mpeg card.
