OK try this:
boot: fb800x600 base norestore
If still no framebuffer device then try...
The undefined mode can usually be avoided with vga=normal
If you cannot run framebuffer, then try various Xvesa options.
boot: dsl base norestore vga=normal xsetup
It might well be the case that you will need to run the full XFree86 extension.
The incompatiable options you had posted was the fb800x600 and vga=771. The fb800x600 implied vga=788 which conflicted with 771. Also the fb800x600 imples the frambufer.
By starting out with the nobase norestore we are sure that no stored prior choices would also be causing a problem, i.e., no prior .xserverrc.
