It uses a Neomagic card (don't remember which one).
Right now, I am just using text consoles. I want to use 
X on demand, i.e. start it when I need it, otherwise shut
it down.

I assume that a text console doesn't use a framebuffer.
I think I compiled the kernel with framebuffer support
(doesn't X need that?).
