I also have IMS TT 128 with 8MB ram..it may be similar to yours.
With stock kernel i have problems initializing it(only works with
video=ofonly..kind of). I patched the driver to force the detection
of TI TVP3030 ramdac instead of IBM ramdac(seems like they use the same
PCI ID and different ramdacs).

I use append="video=imsttfb:vmode:17:cmode:8" with quik and it works
well in console mode. In X i have some problems with wrapping, otherwise
it works.

See these pictures if you have the same problems (OpenFirmware/console/X):

No idea how to fix the wrap problem in X..still working on that.
