SubjectRe: AGP backport from 2.5 to 2.4.21-pre4
The "other kernels" I am talking about are 2.4.19 and 2.4.20 with the 
old agpgart. As I said, the new agpgart module now loads but the results
are the same. I yet have to try some other tricks like setting the AGP
rate manually.

I am also using the latest nvidia modules, which are 1.0-4191
