      It works and even i can use 48 lines on the console 'cause now is
      treated as a graphic device with the XF86_FBDev server (Frame Buffer
      Device server)

      My 'make menuconfig' options that seems to be importants:

      ---------------------------------------------------
      Code maturity level options
      [*]Prompt for development and/or incomplete code/drivers

      Console drivers
      [*]VGA text console
      [*]Video mode selection support
      [*]Support for frame buffer devices (EXPERIMENTAL)
      [*]VESA VGA graphics console
      [*]Advanced low level driver options

      [*] Pearl (old m68k) console 8x8 font
      [*] Acorn console 8x8 font
      ---------------------------------------------------

      Now my /etc/lilo.conf, don't miss the vga=791!

      ---------------------------------------------------
      # LILO configuration file
      #
      boot = /dev/hda
      message = /boot/boot_message.txt
      timeout = 100
      prompt
      # Linux bootable partition config begins
      vga=791
      image = /2213_fbdev
      root = /dev/hda2
      label = fbdev
      read-only
      image = /2213
      root = /dev/hda2
      label = 2213
      read-only
      # Linux bootable partition config ends
      # DOS bootable partition config begins
      other = /dev/hda3
      label = Win
      table = /dev/hda
      # DOS bootable partition config ends
      ----------------------------------------

      And now my /etc/XF86Config but only the most interesting parts:

      This works on my Dell Latitude CPi R400GT with Linux v2.2.13

      All of this information has been achieved on the Net but sorry! I don't

      That's all folks!

      I hope this can help you,
