At the moment, I have managed to prevent screen freezes with the following:


In kernel configuration:
disable framebuffer console support
disable logo conf

=> recompile, install (incl. modules), lilo.

In lilo.conf:

Code:
image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.1
	label=261
	root=/dev/hdc6
	read-only
	optional
	vga=0
	append=" devfs=mount hdb=ide-scsi acpi=off noapci"
	initrd=/boot/initrd-2.6.1.img

In XF86-Config (to prevent color-screwups: 16 bit Default-Color-Depth)

Code:
Section "Screen"
    Identifier "screen1"
    Device "device1"
    Monitor "monitor1"
    DefaultColorDepth 16
    
# more screen modes...

     Subsection "Display"
        Depth 16
        Modes "1280x1024/61Hz" "640x480" 
		Virtual 0 0
    EndSubsection
    
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth 24
        Modes "1280x1024/61Hz" "640x480" 
		Virtual 0 0
    EndSubsection
EndSection
I can now switch between X & Alt-Fx without problems, and I can shutdown the system normally, it seems.
