char mapping display problems after switching to 2.6.28

hello all, I'm not exactly sure where to put this, but it's related to the kernel ... I guess ... and I haven't found much help on this topic. I recently downloaded kernel 2.6.28, compiled it then added it to lilo. for the most part, it displays the text fine, but after loading the char mapping table, all the text is displayed as question marks (?). when I switch back to 2.6.21, the display is fine ... so I'm sure the problem is with the new kernel ... at least I think it is ...

any help will be much appreciated, thanks,
