If you already installed a XF86Config-4 which you can find on 
ftp.parisc-linux.org, check first if your graphic card is the buildin 
one. Then check if the default "Display Mode" match well the setup of 
your console (you can check at bootprompt> console) [on hppa the FB 
driver doesn't allow switching]

Good luck,
