framebuffers will noramlly load by default. if when you boot you get a tux logo in the top corner, or other noddy graphics, that's a framebuffer. how do you actually want to use one? you should have a /dev/fb0 device

right so assuming it's the same hardware, it'll most likely just be your boot options. edit your bootloader config and add an entry like "vga=791" to the boot line boot using a 1024x768 24bit framebuffer. this is noramlly just tagged onto the end of an existing line.
