I enabled fbcon use flag and re-emerged mol.  I ran molvconfig and set up a
ton of video modes.  

When I try to do startmol (from within X/Kde and without) I get a black
screen with a blinking cursor in the upper left.  Anything I type gets
echoed to the screen but that's it.

Thanks!

molvconfig is only available when you enable the fbcon use flag since
it's only appropriate when you're using MOL fullscreen on a virtual
terminal.  If you don't want to use MOL this way, make sure you turn off
the virtual terminal switching in /etc/mol/molrc.video.  If you do want
to use MOL on a virtual terminal (recommended since it's faster)
re-emerge MOL with the fbcon use flag set.
