OK, I guess I'd expected "vga" to work, but you should be able to
do rather better than that.

"vesa" won't work. It relies on call-backs to the BIOS to
configure the display, which we don't currently support. I guess
we could, but there's usually a better driver than vesa available
anyhow, so it hasn't been a priority. 

What happens if you use the "ati" driver? 

Are you sure your kernel is build without CONFIG_{DRM,AGP,FP} ?

If so, its hard to understand why it's rebooting. I wander if
anything might be gleaned from strace'ing what happens when you
start X.
