Default MachSpeed 939A with MGP And NVIDIA 3D How to?

I have a Machspeed 939A, this board is a PCI Express board but has what MachSpeed calls an MGP port. This is an AGP slot that runs on the PCI bus, as to my understanding. I bought this board because it came with an AMD Athlon 64 3200+ and because I would not have to upgrade my graphics card just yet. Everything works fine on the Windows side but I cannot get my graphics to correctly install in Linux. Apparently through mass loads of testing things out and tweaking here and there with some help of some friends and forum members I cannot get it working. Does NVidia have a fix for this? Is there a fix at all? I would sure like some help, most people who have been helping me have given up. Thanks. Here's a copy of my bug report. Thanks for your help.

I see at least two problems in your bug report:
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Unable to read EDID for display device CRT-0

The EDID for the CRT isn't being detected. However, the bigger problem is:
(WW) NVIDIA(0): WAIT (2, 1, 0x8000, 0x00000000, 0x000006c4, 0)
(WW) NVIDIA(0): WAIT (1, 1, 0x8000, 0x00000000, 0x000006c4, 0)

Those WAIT warnings mean that the driver is waiting for something to happen or a resource to become available. In some cases, this is due to a BIOS or kernel bug.

I have a few questions:
0) Have you verified that you're using the latest BIOS for the motherboard?
1) If you boot with the noapic and/or acpi=off kernel parameters, does that have any impact?
2) Does a newer kernel.org (2.6.18.x) kernel help?
3) Does setting NvAGP to 0 in xorg.conf have any impact?
4) Does disabling the framebuffer console graphics (vesafb) help?
