When you want to use VGA + PS/2 you need to configure L4Linux to use
VGA-console and PS2 (keyboard mouse). The l4fb driver can be disabled
either by not compiling it in or be specifying l4fb.disable=0 on the
L4Linux kernel command line. Additionally con nor dope must be started
as L4Linux will drive the keyboard/mouse and screen now.

Sorry, after looking a bit closer it's not so easy to use unfortunately.
So using the Grub is the best option.
