Talking Post Compiling kernel2.6 problem with Xfree86

First of all I sucessfully compiled the kernel v2.8.1 with latest patches from into my system with Redhat9 thanks to the support of the documents in this website...... but there r still some hitches...
the Xfree while loading is giving me an error that says

...Using config file /etc/X11/XF86Config
... GARInit: Unable to open /dev/agpgart
...I810(0): AGP GART is not available. Make sure your kernel has agpgart support or that the agpgart kernel module is loaded

so this is what i am getting i tried running redhat-config-Xfree86
and startx but same error

also i tried from /etc/rc.d/init.d/xfs and tried the various options of start stop reload etc...

the other option that seems feasible is to forcible load the agpgart from the place i have the new kernel dump.... (like i created the dump in /root/file1/linux2.6.8.1 and compiled it from here)

so people if u guys can tell me what to do it would be GR8

you've got to recompile the kernel with agpart enabled.
