Default Problems With FX 5500 and Compaq presario 5000 LA

I have a FX 5500 PCI 256 MB de RAM and get in trouble installing in a Compaq Presario 5000 LA, coz the BIOS "autodetect" the primary video adapter and Disable the Onboard adapter, but Actually, it does a A strange thing.
It disables Both video cards, or maybe only disable the onboard card, a intel 810, and never pass the control output of Text mode to Nvidia card.
So, i get a black screen until Linux start the X windows System, so I get to choose blind witch lilo option need.
Someone get this problem?, someone can know how to almost get the Framebuffer activated at startup?, I prefer to boot up in console mode, not directly into X windows system.
A similar problem I get on Windows .

Greetings and thanks in advance.
