Have you tried switching to 1024x768 mode using vidcontrol. I tried and did not suceed on my last hardware which was a mvp4 chipset with an 8mb blade3d graphics. Right now I have a radeon 7500 on a 440bx chipset. I'd assumed it wouldn't work, this time around also (ref: the url below), but maybe I should give it a try.
So anyways I figured, maybe a framebufer driver would enable switching....

Thanks for any tips on this front.

 i want to run my console in 1024x768.

Why would you want a framebuffer for that?
Do you have frame grabber hardware or something?

If all you want is a 1024x768 video mode driving the text console, vidcontrol(1) can do that, but I don't
understand the connection to a frame buffer...
