Looks like the same problem on a desktop:

Never tried this machine with kernel older than 2.6.2.
FB VESA works fine. If i use ATI Radeon (does'n matter old or new) the screen
goes dark until i start X. With the new driver i found in dmesg:

[...]
Kernel command line: root=/dev/hda1 vga=0x31a
[...]
PCI: Using ACPI for IRQ routing
PCI: if you experience problems, try using option 'pci=noacpi' or even 'acpi=off'
radeonfb: cannot map FB
SBF: Simple Boot Flag extension found and enabled.
SBF: Setting boot flags 0x1
[....]

Compile warnings with new driver:

[...]
