Thanks guys - I've tried that now and it worked - well sort of worked
... I configured the console frame buffer driver for my card (Voodoo 3)
and I now have Tux appearing on boot up as desired, except there's a
slight difference between my new kernel's output and the bf24 kernel
output : there's now a blank white area appearing to Tux's right,
stretching all the way to the right-hand side of the screen - this area
is just normal black with the bf24 kernel.
I guess the bf24 kernel incorporates some kind of generic frame-buffer
driver that behaves differently from the Voodoo 3 one. I'll have a
play with this.
BTW: I'm slightly surprised that an "experimental" feature is enabled in
the default Debian release boot-floppies kernel. I wonder how
experimental it is.
Thanks for the help.
