Works with mine... what's the problem on your end? Is rivafb in the kernel (either permanently or as a loaded module)? -- it shouldn't be...
You need to say yes, in your kernel config, to "VGA text console", "Support for framebuffer devices", and "VESA VGA graphics console". You probably also need to say yes to "Prompt for development and/or incomplete code/drivers".
