Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I accidently pressed the Windows key and all the changes I'd made since the last boot were undone somehow. I set things up again and now I get this error message:
(EE) GARTInit: Unable to open /dev/agpgart (No such file or directory)
(EE)I810(0): AGP GART support is not available. Make sure your kernel has agpgart support or that the agpgart module is loaded.
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.
Fatal server error:
no screens found
XIO fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0" after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
Does Gentoo allow you to recompile the kernel? If so, do that, and make sure you enable agpgart in there. I would think that it would already be there, but I've never even seen a Gentoo system, so I'm really just shootin from the hip here.
I would suggest, now that we know the issue is with agpgart, post a new message on the forum with a subject like "Getting agpgart loaded on Gentoo" or something. This will a) put it into te "zero replies" column, and b) attract people who have specifically dealt with the issue. It's not a great answer, but it's worth a shot.
As for why it's not installed already, that's beyond me.
