In /etc/rc.d/rc.modules find the line for agpart.o and remove the #. There you go, that's all.

Cheers,

...or optionally, you could recompile the module directly in to the kernel...

i love telling newbies to recompile kernels... it makes me feel kinda dirty, evil, and yet somehow sense that i'm doing the world on the whole a favor by weeding out those who will never survive anyway.

kinda like pushing someone in a river to teach them how to swim.

recompile the kernel for me, please

(god, i'm a bitch. )

Had to add these lines
## i810 support ##
/sbin/modprobe agpgart

set in the etc/rc.d/rc.modules worked!
no more typing insmod agpgart.o at boot.
