Problem with Nvidia binary driver. . .

I have Compaq R3000z with an Athlon 64 3200+, nForce 3 chipset, and an 
Nvidia Geforce 4 440 Go.  Currently, I am running the i386 version of 
6-CURRENT, with the newest Xorg and whatnot.  The problem is that when I 
try to startx with the binary Nvidia driver installed, I get an error 

NVRM: AGP cannot be enabled on this combination of the AMD CPU and OS kernel
NVRM: kernel upgrade recommended.

I tried both Nvidia's AGP and FreeBSD's AGP driver, but neither worked.  
When I check the sysctl hw.nvidia.agp.status.status, it says that it is 
disabled, regardless of which AGP I choose to use.  If anyone has any 
insight on what to do to fix this, it would be greatly appreciated.
