I compilled kernel 2.6.20, all it's working.
But I have 2 problems:
1.The rezolution in text mode is not that good, it have the pillow effect.(I hope you know what's that).
2.When I enter Xserver it's working fine, but If I whant to enter in text mode(ctr+alt+Fn or ctr+backspace) my monitor is closing.
Is there any solution?

sounds like some form of framebuffer issue to me... did you include vesa 2.0 framebuffer code in your kernel?

Which graphics card do you use? Don't include any drivers for your card in your kernel if you plan to use proprietary drivers from nvidia or ati. If you want, better make it as module then.

Seems ok at a first glance, i'd try removing the radeon fb stuff myself, but then if you're not explicitly defining that radeonfb in the kernel line it wouldn't use it afaik.
