Smile How to blacklist my intel onboard graphics drivers


I got an NVIDIA 7300 GT gfx card and i compiled a kernel for this card.I uses a 915GV based gigabyte board.now it contains on-board intel gfx.when i plugged in the nvidia card,in bios intel on-board one is automatically disabled.
Now the problem is i get errors with xine player etc.MTRR available but not used etc which by core i think is due to the use of these two modules by my Debian Sid.- intel_agp and agpgart.Now i uses the proprietory driver.so no agpgart or dri etc is needed.
I tried blacklist those two modules(intel_agp,agpgart) using /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist by adding :
Code:
#blacklist intel onboard drivers
blacklist agpgart 
blacklist intel_agp
but even after this these modules are forced loaded at every boot!.is there any way to prevent this modules from loading.do i have to manually move these modules out of the kernel?thanks for the help.

I have to made a file /etc/modprobe.d/00local containing :
[CODE][install intel_agp /bin/true
install agpgart /bin/true/CODE]
along with the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist entry for intel to get those modules not loaded.
now without intel-agp and agpgart loaded,nvidia drivers crashed and no X server started the error log is as follows-will anyone help me!
Code:
Jun  7 22:06:51 jaguar kernel: Linux agpgart interface v0.102 (c) Dave Jones
Jun  7 22:06:51 jaguar kernel: input: PC Speaker as /class/input/input1

Jun  7 22:06:51 jaguar kernel: PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:00:1e.2 to 64
what is the reason for NVIDIA drivers asking for intel-agp and agpgart.it is confusing.thanks please help.
