        Yes, that works.
        Does this have any drawbacks regarding the use of xorg? (I
        haven't yet installed that...)

I can confirm this problem exists on Sunblade100 with the 2.6.18-3 (Mon
4 Dec) and the same fix works.

:: my stuff ::

I'm not able to boot a sunblade150. i'm using (what i assume is) an
older install cd (20061111), and I'm not entirely sure what kernel it
uses. i think its a 2.6.17-* kernel.

I'm hoping someone can look at what i entered and tell me how I'm
passing the parameters wrong. Or tell me to use a newer cd :)

* Video card in (an ATI Radeon from 2002, not sure what exactly)

no switches
ide=nodma mem=512

* Video card out (illegal instruction error for all trys, drops back to

no switches 
expert video=atyfb:off
expert append="atyfb:off ide=nodma"
expert append="video=atyfb:off ide=nodma"
expert video=atyfb:off ide=nodma
