Default Driver screwing up tty's 1-6

I have a severe problem using the Display driver 5336 with SuSE Linux 9.0.

The installer works fine and X runs without any problems with hardware accelleration etc.
But as soon as I load X, or sax2 using the nvidia module, the nvidia driver seems to srew up the textmode tty's so that i can only use X.

Using the default driver nv, detected at installation, is no help because it results in not displayable resolutions. I only see flickering as if the refresh rates are not displayable by the monitor. The only way to start X AND leaving the other tty's displayable is to use framebuffer graphics or BIOS graphics.

My configuration is as follows:

Asus A7N8X deluxe 2.0
GEForce FX5700Ultra 128MB
Kernel 2.4.21-144 k_athlon

I additionally attached a picture of tty1 the way it looks after starting X

I hope there's a simple way to fix this
