I tried out the Etch beta1 installer.
Got some problems.

Grub screen is blank on the reboot, making reboot impossible.
Filed a bug report (342570).

Other than that:
In Sarge I could add vga=791 to the boot parameters and get fbcon.

That no longer works: vga=791 now gets a blank screen.

Anybody used the Etch Installer and gotten into fn mode?

:-( sorry for the typo: framebuffer mode, that is.

Too bad. I copied the lilo parameters for vesafb-tng from here:

and those are incompatible with the vga= parameter.

So vga=791 *does* work.
