Default AGP Rate 0x: what means that?

I've installed on my PC (PIII 600 5 years old) a Nvidia TNT2 graphics card.
O.S. is Linux Ubuntu Breezy 5.10 Kernel 2.6.12-10-686.
I've installed nvidia "legacy" drivers corresponding at 1.0-7174 nvidia driver.
The command
cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status
reports this:
Status: Enabled
AGP Rate: 0x
Fast Writes: Disabled
SBA: Disabled

What means AGP Rate: 0x?
My motherboard and BIOS support AGP up to 2x.
Is there something wrong on my system?
Must I configure some settings to have AGP rate work at 2x?
Thank you.
Here is the report of nvidia-bug-report.sh.

It means that you don't have the correct AGP motherboard drivers installed to take advanatge of AGP and will be working in PCI compatibility mode i highly recommend you upgrade the motherboard drivers.

Try using nvagp

Here are instructions, they are for the 80 series of drivers but will work the same for the 71 series

Have a nice day!!!
