I had the same problem on my old thinkpad 365x, and solved it with a neat little package called SVGATextMode.  It took a couple of hours to read through the documentation and pull the essential info out of my XF86Config file, but it worked great, at least under the 2.2 kernel series.  My current machine, a thinkpad i1200, shows full screen console without SVGATextMode, running 2.2.19.  I don't know why. Good luck.
