Default Re: kernel compile error

No, I haven't seen it before, but I'll take a shot anyway.

I assume you've tried turning off AGPGART, and if you do that, you don't get this error, right?

Where did you get this kernel, 2.4.20-8, from?

If you look at agpgart_be.c, on line 4347, what does it say?

How is the agp_bridge_data struct defined, in the drivers/char/agp/agp.h file? Does it have a num_of_masks member according to that file?

You didn't patch your kernel before compiling it, did you? If you did, where'd you get the patch? (because in my 2.4.20 tree, the num_of_masks member is there, but in my 2.4.21, it's gone -- that, plus the fact that this is an nvidia initializing function (for the nForce AGP, I'd assume), makes me think you or RedHat applied the 2.4.20 nForce AGP patch against their not-close-enough-to-2.4.20 kernel).
