Long story! Using the Debian Sid kernels I cannot get framebuffers with the standard vesafb, only with uvesafb. So using 'vga=791' does nothing with a Debian post 2.6.24 kernel. But when I compile the kernel from kernel.org it *does* work.

But my problem of the "black terminal" does not occur when I use my older MX4000 AGP. Figure that.
