Did you try any Sarge installer CD?

The built-in framebuffer is a cg14 (SG) but you need a special vsimm (4MB or 
8MB) to use it. However, it has the advantage of more (and higher) 
resolutions than the cg6 and 24bit color depth (cg6 is only 8bit). The cg14 
is automatically the default when available.
