Default Unable to load Nvidia Module on Geforce MX440 (Fixed!)

Hi,

I'm using an old Abit kt7 motherboard and kernel-2.4.26 with the latest nvidia drivers, the board support 2x and 4x, yet when ever I try to load the nvidia module, it fails, the chipset on the mobo is a KT133, this is supported by the nvidia driver, it loads the agpgart module fine, yet it refuses to load the nvidia module, the only output that I can find in /var/log/messages is:

--- cut ----
Linux agpgart interface v0.99 (c) Jeff Hartmann
agpgart: Maximum main memory to use for agp memory: 815M
agpgart: Detected Via Apollo Pro KT133 chipset
agpgart: AGP aperture is 64M @ 0xe0000000

NVRM: loading NVIDIA Linux x86 NVIDIA Kernel Module 1.0-6106 Wed Jun 23 08:14:01 PDT 2004
NVRM: not using NVAGP, AGPGART is loaded!!
NVRM: not using NVAGP, AGPGART is loaded!!
--- cut ----

Yet I have specified in my XF86Config to only load the Nvidia driver,
can someone help to shed some light on this..

Thanks

Mark

Ok, fixed now, my system was auto loading the agpgart module automatically, removing this, allowed me to run the NVAGP module instead (typical, 2minutes after posting I fix it...doh!)
