Try the following: In the Linux config in the "console drivers" section,
enable "Video mode selection", "Support for frame buffer devices", 
"VESA VGA graphics console", "Select compiled-in fonts", "Sparc console
12x22 font" (Linux 2.2.18).

Then append at your Lilo kernel command line the following options:

  vga=0x317 video=vesa:redraw,mtrr,font:SUN12x22

This gives you a 85x34 Characters text console with a very nice font.

For X11, I suggest you to use XFree 4.02 with the current driver by
Tim Roberts (http://www.probo.com/timr/savage40.html). Works fine here.

Runs fine here with 16bpp on potato.
