Ok. So you do not have framebuffer modules installed on the system.
I suggest you upgrade to kernel 2.4.20 and try to get the framebuffer
modules. I don't know if you have told your Linux distribution, but
I think most major ones would have the fb modules available as rpm (or deb)
package. If not, then you can always make your own kernel, but it is
whole another story then how.

After you get framebuffer working, you can insert a line
       Option           "UseFBDev"
under the line "Driver mga".

this is ok.

No, unless you really want to use framebuffer.
