When starting X in z01 configuration (removed all vga= video= and nomodeset)
without xorg.conf, I get garbage on screen, i can play with numlock button, and
mouse device moves a square of garbage in front of funny screen.

To get a usable X, I have to use ... identical kernel and bios settings, just
add vga=794 video=1280x1024 vgaa_=normal nomodeset ... with z01 xorg.conf (and
commenting the second screen, called screen_3 IIRC).

Note that without nomodeset, console enters FB mode, of course.

At the moment, I booted with
vga=794 video=1280x1024 vgaa_=normal nomodeset___
with no xorg.conf (because I actually forgot to restaure it), and startx worked
sucessfully. I do not have FB. xrandr failed to switch on the second head (I
may play with xrandr when I finished this report). In short, i got one monitor
working properly.
