A small tip for fixing the problem that the console doesn't work when you leave X (the free version --- still no-one out there seems to know how to get the NVidia driver to work) on the Samsung X10: put vga=791 as a kernel parameter (need support for Frame buffer devices and nVidia RIVA driver set in the kernel, but these are set by default at least in RH9 kernel). e.g. in /etc/grub.conf you need something like:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-8 ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi vga=791

This was from a guy with a webpage with some tips for the X10:
