FC3 how to enable plain framebuffer or vesa mode for X?

I fail to make FC3 work on my Asus P4S800D motherboard with Geforce FX 
5900 graphics card.

Is there a way to use stock FC3 software to switch X to Framebuffer or 
Vesa mode without research & compilation? And if so, how to make it? 
fbset only reports 640x480 mode and I can't switch to anything else.

Any help welcomed,
thank you
