1) I don't know - I will have to test for you, but seeing as I build monolithic kernel (nvidia is only module), I will have to do a special kernel build to take out AGPGART built in.
2) Again, I do not know - I have always used vesaFB?
3) The mobo is via KT7:

I do not know the BIOS version off hand - but it is original, so dates from around 2000.
I have just build and install xorg -> X Window System Version 6.9.0
Release Date: 21 December 2005, so I will presist and report back here if I still get this issue. Maybe others that get it too can tack on.
Thanks for reply.
P.S. I am also on KDE3.5.2
