Is this *really* text mode? Or does this draw pixels on the screen? :

Can you send /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 to the list, please?

That's impossible to answer until we know why it isn't working.
BTW, the stifb driver can't change the screen resolution, so what you
have in /etc/XF86Config-4 has to match the current resolution (which
you can change from the PDC "BOOT_ADMIN" prompt). (FWIW, it should be
possible to fix the driver.)
