Hm! Good idea.

Unfortunately things work even less well there. Basically I configured
the PCI card as the main one in the BIOS. Machine came up, and hey, the booting text came out on the 3rd head.

Tried the X server (with the same config that is in the attachment on
my original post.)

In the Xorg log we have the following messages:

Another problem, looking in /dev/ I only see /dev/nvidia1 (and /dev/nvidiactl).

So, now it is still failing because it can not load the pci video card at
PCI:2:1:0, but the AGP card at PCI:1:0:0 is not initialized at all.

Hrm. The thing that has me puzzled is that the bios and os and even the Xorg startup log indicate that they all see the device. The problem seems to be specifically that it says "no 'device' entry found for device PCI:2:1:0 even though there clearly is a device entry for PCI:2:1:0. It is like something is silently barfing or skipping over that device section.

I guess I should look in the provided source to see if there is anything obvious.
