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.
