If it was a problem about xorg.conf, then you will see it.
At least you should have a correct boot.
Then change the xorg.conf or whatever configuration file you have, accordingly.
Thanks for the answer, but it haven't solved my issue... The switch to graphical mode in console soon during the booting process is seemingly a relatively new behavior in Linux, and it have nothing to do with Xorg... There's a parameter "nomodeset" that can apparently be passed to the kernel as parameter but I don't know how to do that when using SPARC, in any case I tried it in different way and it didn't work... I kind of put that on the ice, in the meantime I use Debian 6.0.7 whom I managed to get working...
