It's my understanding that the AGP goes on the south bridge, as opposed to the
north bridge. I honestly don't know which of those is host vs whatever. I'm not
a chipset guy *that* much. ;)  Anyways, either way, the basic code should be 
adaptable to PowerPC. So long as we can get pin-for-pin electronic compatibility
and we can get any AGP-specific instructions ported, we'll be okay.

Also, never ever leave me alone on a T1 with a browser and a task.
