bingo! right answer! they had framebuffer support enabled in the
kernel configuration for some insane reason. burning a kernel without
it solved the problem. (this is gonna make life *really* interesting
for people with g-400 cards who decide 7.3 is the time to give suse a
try. what a friggin' disaster.)

while i was at it, i grabbed the mantel 2.4.13 and built an athlon
kernel that -- gulp -- works!

There is sobbing of the strong,
And a pall upon the land;
But the People in their weeping
Bare the iron hand;
Beware the
People weeping
When they bare the iron hand.
