you should see a line to the effect of
"(II) NVIDIA(0): AGP 4X successfully initialized
"

your X may log somewhere else so you might have to change the XFree86.0.log part

I will not be able to check it right now since I am at work , thats the first thing I will do once i get back. Thanks man.

The most important question that sleeped out of my head was that I am not able to check "enable hardware acceleration" , any idea why ?? My openGL apps run but not as good as they are suppoed to , thats why I am suspecting its the AGP 4X or something like that. Thanks a lot guys.

Odd... it doesn't stop me from loading the driver at all...

You can also cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status if you want. If it says 2x or 1x, then look at /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/card and /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/host-bridge to see which device (the video card or your motherboard) isn't capable of 4x mode.

From the README:

Quote:
Q: I've installed the driver, but my Enable 3D Acceleration checkbox is still
greyed out! What did I do wrong?

A: Most distribution-provided configuration applets aren't aware of the NVIDIA
accelerated driver, and consequently won't update themselves when you install
the driver. Your driver, if it has been installed properly, should function
fine.
