Framebuffer support works!!!!

In my previous posts I asked how to get the framebuffer support to work.
If anyone has the same problem, here is how i did it

When i did make menuconfig during the 2.4.27 kernel compilation, "Console drivers" menu only had "VGA text console" and "Video mode selection support" submenus.
To get a third submenu called "Frame buffer support", one needs to go to menu "Code maturity level options" and select the submenu "[*] Prompt for development and/or incomplete code/drivers".

So, now when you go to the "Console drivers" menu, you'll be able to turn on the "Frame buffer support" and I use VESA framebuffer even though i have ATI Radeon card.
