Thanks, but it wasn't there.  Actually the driver disables AGP for me 
because I have a buggy ALi chipset that it auto-detects.

The only difference between this system and the way I had it when it was 
my Myth box is the kernel.  The Myth box was running an ATrpms kernel, 
now after swapping drives it's running a RedHat/Fedora kernel.  Both 
are/were 2.4.22-1.2199.nptl, and everything else is pretty much a stock 
FC1 installation.  I think I'll take this over to the Nvidia/Linux
