Default AGP Mode 4

I was reading the README file that came from the web site when I downloaded my drivers and I noticed that I have the ability to change the default mode of the AGP card to mode 4. now, how exactly do I do this. I added this to the moduels.conf file:

alias char-major-195 NVdriver
options NVdriver NVreg_Enable4x=1

I have an i815 Chipset

But when I look at the messages log, it still stats MODE 2:

I am using Red Hat 8.0 and have a GeForce 4 MX 440. The drivers work great except for the slower speed.

Is this the proper way to do this, or is there another way.

Thanks for the assistance

Oh, BTW, I set the BIOS to mode x4
