"disable=" only works with SCSI host adapter drivers, which "ct" isn't.
An unfortunate little inconsistency.

You are probably right that you have the wrong display driver. You
should be able to switch with Ctrl+Alt+Fn. However, if you do that
*after* the X server has tried to put your card in graphics mode, using
the wrong driver, it's very likely that it won't be able to put it back
in text mode.
To get around this, boot to single-user mode and run `mkdev graphics`,
choose a more appropriate driver.

That's an S3 ViRGE card, according to:
We don't have a ViRGE driver yet. I don't know whether any of the other
S3 drivers would get anywhere. You should install AHS 5.2 to get the
latest drivers (it's on your CD). Then try some of the higher-end S3
drivers: "86C928", "Trio64 (86C764)" and "Vision864/Vision964
(86C864/86C964)". I would have the best hopes for the 864/964 driver,
but it's worth trying the others.

All of the documentation, including the OpenServer Handbook, is on your
CD (and installed on your system). You can look at it with any browser.
One choice is to get X running in IBM VGA 640x480x16 mode, then use the
provided scohelp or Mosaic, or download Netscape Navigator from SCO's
test drive site. Or you can use the included [extremely weak] "cm_help"
character mode browser. Or you can download Lynx from
http://www2.sco.com/Skunk96/tools.html (my choice). Whatever browser
you use, point it at http://localhost/dochome.html:
and you have access to the entire documentation set.
