I found it, it wasn't the framebuffer. Under console drivers you need to
enable the VESA-Console driver. 
Of course this leaves you with a post-boot VESA console, meaning less than
wonderfull colors and text-size. If somebody knows a way to swithc the
screen back to 80 Character mode (a linux equavilent to the dos command mode
CO80) then this can become very nice indeed.
