But I think I can live with it
You may not have to get rid of the framebuffer console. In Mandrake 10 I found that only the video mode that comes default (the one with the faded out logo on the console) caused problems. Adding vga=0x303 to grub.conf got my friend a 800x600@8bit console and no problems, maybe you could try vga=0x313 which, if I'm not mistaken, is 1024x768@8bit (just check the vesafb.txt file in the kernel's documentation dir).
