If you have a motherboard with built-in AGP video and an AGP slot, you 
"disable" the on-board video by plugging an AGP video card into the AGP 
slot.  It is impossible to have more than one AGP card on an AGP bus and 
it is impossible to have more than one AGP bus, so the board 
automatically disables the on-board AGP when you plug in the AGP card.
