Well, in my case it did solve the problem of xorg locking up. It is
something you can try out, maybe it works, maybe it doesn't. The card
still works with AGP disabled, only a bit slower, but ... it works and
does not lock up anymore.
I don't know much about hardware, but I guess there some problem with
Nvidia working together with certain AGP chipsets on FreeBSD/Linux,
but not on Windows. Strange ....
Anyway, your problem might be the same, might be diffenrent, disabling
AGP might help, or it might not, just try it out. I would be
interested to hear whether it worked, though.
