Alternate video cards are a good plan. The one you have got in there at present is probably an older fx board - I have an fx4 and that isn't supported either, but my _really_ old crappy 24bit framebuffer card does work - it's just slow.

As for the b0 thing: this is related to the various places you can have your console on PA-RISC machines.
The best one would be the STI framebuffer (stifb) which as you can see is not supported on your machine hence the first error message.
There's the STI text console (sticon) which works on more cards and seems to be alright for your machine; probably the one you see on your display =)

Finally there is the 'PDC software console' or a serial console.
The tty device for the PDC console is /dev/ttyB0 and the entry in /etc/inittab that describes it is called 'b0' - it would appear that init can't start a login prompt on your ttyB0, which probably means it isn't built-in to your kernel or the device node is missing from /dev - so it fails, constantly, and then init gets pissed off and stops restarting it for a while. Commenting out the line starting with b0 in /etc/inittab should be fine for you.
