| Hi James,
| This is on my system with a 2.6.4 kernel:
| /lib/modules/2.6.4-1-386/kernel/drivers/char/agp/agpgart.ko
| You would add the line:
| agpgart
| to the /etc/modules file.
| This will load this module upon startup.
| If you want to see it work now, you can manually type:
| modprobe agpgart
| to see what happens and try to configure X for there.

Thanks for all the surggestions, I have tried adding agpgart but there
was not change. Now the first error message is

(EE) I810: Given depth (1) is not supported by i810 driver

I have played around with the colour depths, evening setting to 1 didn't
change this situation.

After running dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86 I have noticed that there
isn't a XF86Config file in /etc/X11 there is only XF86Config-4 with a
load of other stuff. Should I have a XF86Config as well as XF86Config-4?

James
