AGP initialization failed, please check the ouput
of the 'dmesg' command and/or your system log file
for additional information on this setup problem.
And X still locks up solid weather you I AGPGART or NvAGP.

But on the good side, I don't have any badness in pci_find_subsys in my syslog.

I really hoped Nvidia had solved this issue, but alas, they haven't.

This might not be a nvidia-issue at all!
Some SIS-Board have a timing bug that crashes X for the first start, this happened to me too.
This should have been fixed in the newest kernel versions (2.6.6/2.6.7) by adding an additional wait, but it still doesn't work for me.
The solution I use is starting a program named "testgart" before I run X. Testgart runs into the same timing bug that X would, but it doesn't crash the system. After that, X should run smoothly (all with agpgart that is)

Good Luck
