Is your kernel using rivafb? Do a cat /proc/fb (AFAIK, this will work in X) to see the driver that's being used -- it should say "<some number> VESA VGA". If it says anything else, you very likely aren't using vesafb for the high-res text console (which isn't actually text mode, btw, it's a VESA standard mode with a BIOS font). vesafb is the only thing that will work with the nVidia X drivers.
