Is like if X don't come back properly from graphic mode... If I change inittab default runlevel to 3 then I can see them very well, but if i run gdm and press Ctrl-Alt-F1, can't see any text since then.

It's a know bug and it's been answered a lot on this list:

You have to replace /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libvgahw.a
with
ftp://people.redhat.com/mharris/libvgahw.a

Then restart X and it should work
