Unless someone comes up with a better solution, I suggest to apply following
patch:

--- linux-2.4.20-pre6/drivers/video/fbcon.c Wed Sep 11 08:19:48 2002
+++ linux-m68k-2.4.20-pre6/drivers/video/fbcon.c Thu Sep 12 15:22:35 2002

if (MACH_IS_MAC)
/* ++Geert: hack to make 6x11 fonts work on mac */
p->dispsw = &fbcon_mac;
