You might try setting a default bit depth of 8, 15 or 16 (15 is
better). I think the 24 bit is the problem, that it cannot do a 24bit
screen. The Mach64 GT is notoriously problematic chipset :(
Also what video driver are you booting with? If you've set the "no
video driver" option in BootX this will cause you problems as X can't
run with the ati driver if you're running offb. a quick dmesg | grep
fb should tell you what video driver you are using.
