This is already decided by the kernel on the choice of the used framebuffer 
console and not necessarily correct (means: differs from openboot).
OpenBoot on the U60 will choose the Creator3D if present, else the PCI card. 
Kernel uses framebuffer on the PCI card.

This difference messes up display the display (wrong colors), so I only have 
one inserted.
So maybe you don't need prtconf but choose dependent on the current kernel 

BTW: Is there a way to change the framebuffer choice in OB?
