darn... there we go again, i forgot to give the version i am running.
I have FreeBSD 6.3-STABLE, xorg 7.3_1 and yes with the
x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel port installed. I fell back to
915resolution since this intel driver failed. I was hoping to get some
joy with 915resolution, but realised that it does not support this
chipset as well :-(.
I deinstalled the intel driver and installed the i810 driver, but no
joy either. Im back to the intel driver and i still cannot get
1280x800 done. every time i startx i get the error i described
earlier. I checked and /dev/agpgart does not exist. Im sure i compiled
my kernel with "device agp".
thanks for the assistance.

Of course, you might discount this possibility, but remember that one in
a million chances happen 99% of the time.
