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.
