Problems with radeon9200 and agp

Hello. I have read many other posts simmilar to my problem, befor starting this one, i could't help my self out. (sorry for my english). I am new to linux, been trying many distros and i ended up with mandrake 9.1.
I have an Asus A7V8X mb, Athlon 2800+, radeon 9200

I think my agp wont work, i have agpgart copiled as a module. I installed the ati drivers for my graphics card, compiled the modules from it...
here are some clues from the logs (only things that look strange for me)

Linux agpgart interface v0.99 (c) Jeff Hartmann
agpgart: Maximum main memory to use for agp memory: 439M
agpgart: Detected Via Apollo Pro KT400 chipset
agpgart: unable to determine aperture size.

[drm] register handle = 0xdf800000
(EE) fglrx(0): [agp] unable to acquire AGP, error "xf86_ENODEV"
(EE) fglrx(0): cannot init AGP
(II) fglrx(0): [drm] removed 1 reserved context for kernel
(II) fglrx(0): [drm] unmapping 8192 bytes of SAREA 0xe8aa3000 at 0x40014000
(WW) fglrx(0): ***********************************************
(WW) fglrx(0): * DRI initialization failed! *
(WW) fglrx(0): * (maybe driver kernel module missing or bad) *
(WW) fglrx(0): * 2D acceleraton available (MMIO) *
(WW) fglrx(0): * no 3D acceleration available *
(WW) fglrx(0): ********************************************* *

When i try to insmod agpgart i get:

/lib/modules/2.4.21-0.13mdk/kernel/drivers/char/agp/agpgart.o.gz: init_module: Invalid argument
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
modprobe: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.21-0.13mdk/kernel/drivers/char/agp/agpgart.o.gz failed
modprobe: insmod agpgart failed

Oh i use XFree86 4.3.0.

Please help me out. Thaks.
