Default /dev/fb0 doesn't exist

I am having problems trying to get an application to run, it says that it cannot find /dev/fb0.
At the moment I have vga=normal in my grub, because if I change this, I get the corruption.
Is there anyway to convince the linux system I do have a frame buffer?

Incidentally I am getting similar problems on my old linux box, which I am hoping to turn into a mame machine. I get errors identical to my nvivida laptop. I cannot find a vga= parameter which will turn on the fb. I have even tried setting the device to vesa->framebuffer device in Sax2 but it doesn't test it properly - comes back with the same error above.

Maybe you have to do this, then restart? I'm not sure, but I don't want to muck my configuration up.
