One more package, the "drm". This contains the sources. If you have 
"kernel-headers" (as opposed to the now "linux-headers") installed, there 
will be a little script to build them for you. Otherwize, go the the 
"linux-core" subdirectory, read the Makefile for instructions. Make mach64.o 
with appropriate reference to your kernel sources, LINUXDIR= if I remember. 
Copy the two resulting mach64.ko and drm.ko to the appropriate place in 
your /lib/modules/kernel .... (there may be a drm.ko there but that one will 
not work--you can locate that to find the place, though).

Now make sure agpgart and mach64 modprobe in this order on bootup.
