Default My continuing saga for AGP to work

This is my first post. I am running mandrake10, AMD Athlon 1.2 GHz, VIA KM133 chipset, GeForce FX 5200 and here is my output from cat /proc/drivers/nvidia/cards/0:
Model: GeForce FX 5200
IRQ: 11
Video BIOS:
Card Type: AGP

Output of cat /proc/drivers/nvidia/agp/status
Status: Disabled

Output of grep -i agp /var/log/XFree86.0.log
(**) NVIDIA(0): Option "NvAGP" "1"
(**) NVIDIA(0): Use of NVIDIA internal AGP requested
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Failed to verify AGP usage

Output of dmesg | grep -i agp
Linux agpgart interface v0.100 (c) Dave Jones
agpgart: Detected VIA Twister-K/KT133x/KM133 chipset
agpgart: Maximum main memory to use for agp memory: 321M
agpgart: AGP aperture is 64M @ 0xe0000000
0: NVRM: not using NVAGP, AGPGART is loaded!!

In my XF86Config-4 file I have the driver as 'nvidia' and Options "NvAGP" "1"

I am getting 950 fps in glxgears, and I just know that if I could get the AGP to work then I could increase that number significantly. I compiled a kernel without agpgart and the system hangs with ascii garbage on the screen. I have tried Options "NvAGP" "2" and the same thing. I have almost given up. In the nvidia readme file it lists the VIA KT133 chipset as being compatible so I assumed that the VIA KM133 chipset would be as well. Was this an incorrect assumption. Can anyone help? Thanks,
