Kernel upgrade - while we are on the subject

I have not yet been able to get an STI login on my 715/80.
My machine has two graphics cards and uses an HIL kb / mouse.
I want to use the "stock" graphics card; e.g. (graphics).

Here are some of my boot messages as they appear on the
STI console:

Command line for kernel: 'root=/dev/sda2 HOME=/ console=tty0 sti=0 sti_font=VGA8x16 TERM=linux'
Selected kernel: /boot/vmlinux from partition 2
Opening /boot/vmlinux
Opening /boot/vmlinux-2.4.9-32
Branching to kernel entry point 0x00100000. If this is the last
message you see, you may need to switch your console. This is
a common symptom -- search the FAQ and mailing list at parisc-linux.org

And thats it. In a few moments I get a login on the dumb terminal, but
nothing further is displayed on the console.

I have experimented and setting sti=1 in PALO makes no difference.

I worked on this a while back and didn't really make any headway, but
I would like to get X running on this thing anytime now.

That business about switching my console, what do they mean? Isn't it
already switched via PALO? Do I need to change some settings somewhere
on the filesystem? Do I need some secret kernel boot option? Should I
try and make a new kernel? If so where is the latest debian source for
the hppa linux kernel?

Thanks list!

Kind of hard considering I'm not on site :)
