Success !! all I had to do was disable APIC in the bios as well as the other KT400 workarounds. It also fixed my soundcard. I wonder why they bothered putting APIC on a single processor mobo ?

This is the workaround I used :

OK, I'll give some details on my successfull installation hoping that it will help. The following settings enable AGP 4x with the nvidia agp driver.

Hardware:
Gainward GeForce3 with VIA KT400

Linux kernel: 2.4.20, patched with newest acpi and bttv drivers. IMPORTANT: disable agpgart support in kernel (it only supports AGP x2 for KT400 and not good anyway)

NVIDIA driver version: 43.63

/etc/X11/XF86Config: (relevant parts)
....
Section "Module"
Load "dbe"
Load "type1"
Load "speedo"
Load "extmod"
Load "freetype"
Load "v4l"
Load "glx"
EndSection
....
Section "Device"
Identifier "Device[0]"
Driver "nvidia"
BoardName "Gainward"
Option "dpms"
Screen 0
Option "NoLogo" "true"
Option "NvAgp" "1"
Option "PageFlip" "true"
Option "DigitalVibrance" "2"
Option "HWCursor" "true"
Option "SWCursor" "false"
EndSection

/etc/modules.conf:
...
alias char-major-195 nvidia
options nvidia NVreb_EnableVia4x=1
options nvidia NVreg_ReqAGPRate=0x4

/etc/lilo.conf
...
image = /boot/kernel2420
label = linux-noacpi
root = /dev/hda7
append = " pci=noacpi pci=biosirq"
...
(do not forget to run lilo after changing lilo.conf)

Good luck.
