I have also a AGP nVidia GeForce2 MX video card but i'm using the nVidia's
closed-source drivers which works fine.
I experienced also flickering but i fixed it by updating manually in the
XF86config-4 file the refrech rate given in my monitor documentation.
Be carfull with that! Be sure to put value given in your monito doc!!
