I have the same problem w/ an AST Bravo pentium-100.  It has a Mach64
ati-264ct chip integrated on the mother board.  When probing for the sc0
or pc0 device it blanks the screen and stays blank.  With a syscons kernel
I can run XFree86 3.1.2's SVGA server in its 320x200 fallback mode, which
also makes the virtual terminals accessible again.  There has been some
discussion of getting the mach64 X server working w/ it on and on comp.os.linux.x newsgroups.  So far none of the
things they have mentioned have worked.
