Default Black Screen of Death on SMP system

Running Debian Etch with a 2.6.18 kernel on Dual Pentium-III with a Hercules II Prophet MX/400 using the Xorg-server 7.0.0 with the 8776 Nvidia driver.

Only works if I disable NvAGP in the xorg.conf section.
Option "NvAGP" "0"
Tried changing the os-registry.c file settings to downgrade the rate to values of 2 and 1. Neither work.

My motherboard only supports 2x rate.

But reading through the posts have come to the conclusion that this an SMP problem. I've had this working before but uninstalled and tried the DRI supported cards like ATI Radeon's, Matrox 400's, etc. But none have given the equivalent performance from the Geforce2 card using the nvidia driver.

Seen a few posts about a patch to get the i2c working. But no patches for this particular version of the driver so it works on an SMP system. But here's the log file before the whole system locks up and is unable to log anymore.

The log file is included

Thanks, for any help.
