Did not find VBE info block

I am trying to get the console using l4env and fiasco
on an old x86 desktop. Is it like the bash shell?
Images have been compiled from CVS sources. All images
are booted from the grub present in the demo floppy.

The grub entry is as follows:

kernel (fd0)/l4/v2/rmgr -sigma0
modaddr 0x01500000
kernel (fd0)/l4/v2/main -noserial -nowait -nokdb
kernel (fd0)/l4/v2/sigma0
kernel (fd0)/l4/v2/names
kernel (fd0)/l4/v2/log
kernel (fd0)/l4/v2/dm_phys
kernel (fd0)/l4/v2/con

The output that I get while booting is as follows:

con | OSKit support: using 128 KB at 0x00002000 as
con | Characters size is 8x14, font has 256 characters
con | vc_init_gr ():
con | [8.2] l4con/server/src/vc.c: 315: vc_init_gr():
con | Did not find VBE info block in multiboot info
con | Perhaps you have to upgrade GRUB, RMGR or
con | GRUB has to set the video mode with the vbeset
con |
con | Alternatively, try passing the --vbemode=<mode>
con |

----PANIC, 'g' for exit

By console, does it correspond to serial port output
or the VGA display? The desktop is a Sony Trinitron
multiscan 15sx display.

Any suggestions/ideas would be useful,
