Default VIA Apollo P4X400 chipset (VT8754 +VT8235)

I just bought a SOYO SY-P4x400 Dragon ultra. Put RH8.0 on it. Got everything to work, including the nvidia drivers. But there is one problem. No agp support. Not NvAgp nor AGPGART.

I know AGPGART is trying to load as a module. Cause I get the unsupported chipset warning. So I add to modules.conf:

alias char-major-10-175 agpgart
options agpgart agp_try_unsupported=1
alias char-major-195 NVdriver

And AGPGART appears to load ok. then when X starts (using Option "NvAGP" "2" in XF86Config), I get a little red square up at the top left of screen. I know it is a problem with AGPGART because if comment out the entry in modules.conf for agpgart, or set "NvAgp" "0", then X starts fine.

I guess I wait. I searched all change logs in kernel's 2.4 and 2.5 and found nothing for support on this chipset in regards to AGPGART.
What of NVagp? Any chance that these chipsets will be supported?
Any help? Any ideas. I am out of them. The only thing I got left is return the board, or by windows. And it would be cheaper to by different board!
