try this:

   modprobe -a agpgart

if that doesn't work,

   cd /usr/src/linux/linux-version
   make menuconfig
   build agpgart as a module (simplest)
   make dep
   make modules
   make modules_install
   depmod -a

   modprobe -a agpgart

or, if you know how to build a kernel, i'd build it right into the

before you follow this advice, do this:

   dmesg | grep -i agpgart

and see if agpgart is trying to register itself but is failing for some
reason.  if you don't see any mention, then definitely try the above.
