Thank you again!
I removed splash and quiet form the menu.lst and added "console=tty0 console=ttyS0,115200", as you can see below:

I got some success here: startx works, but there's still no vga console before X starts. I think there is some problem with the lxfb driver because, if i switch the line " Device "AMD" " by "Device "Generic Video Card"" in the xorg.conf file, I get no result. lxfb and fbcon are built into the kernel.
This is starting to get off topic for the linuxbios list, but I'll answer it here since others might have the same problem.
X and the kernel have nothing to do with one-another - they are completely seperate entities. If you do not see the text console (and the penguin) once the kernel has started, then something has gone wrong. Please send the dmesg output from your kernel, and your kernel config.
