framebuffer desktop

How to set up a framebuffer desktop (environment) / no X desktop (environment)? In my case: Debian etch, allready with framebuffer but I mean that I have in framebuffer all I use in X - also read pdf (without hanging up the whole system..) and so on.

I don't quite get your question... A graphical desktop without X? What were you planning to use instead?

You could just disable the X11 service from starting automatically if plain consoles are what you want. ctrl-alt-f1 through ctrl-alt-f6 get you to different consoles, ctrl-alt-f7 brings you to X11 if running or nothing if not.
