This is a problem when VGA console support is enabled in the kernel
config. (Beware that if you disable it, you must make distclean before
recompiling to get proper display).

I know Geert had a fix for that, I'm not sure if that was included in
upstream sources or not as I didn't have this option checked for monthes
in my kernel.

For this machine (tipb), you should really use either the linuxppc_2_4_devel
tree or my rsync. (The only difference for you here beeing that my rsync
will bring the AGP stuff).
