So, I'm not having terrific luck with any combination of settings I try.

The latest FreeBSD driver release from Nvidia is the same as the
version in the ports tree. This is what I've installed.

Attempting the AGPGART route (building the driver with
"WITH_FREEBSD_AGP=yes" and disabling NvAgp support in xorg.conf) still
results in a reboot.

Going the NvAGP route (Building without support for AGPGART, setting
NvAgp to 1 in the xorg.conf, and setting hint.agp.0.disabled=1 in
/boot/device.hints) also results in a reboot when X starts. One thing
I notice here; when I specify hint.agp.0.disabled=1, and check the
output of 'kldstat -v' after booting, I still see several agp drivers

$ kldstat -v |grep -i agp
                387 pci/agp_ali
                388 pci/agp_amd
                389 pci/agp_amd64
                390 pci/agp_ati
                391 pci/agp_i810
                392 pci/agp_intel
                393 pci/agp_nvidia
                394 pci/agp_sis
                395 pci/agp_via

Is this a problem?

I suspect a couple of problems with what I'm doing. Number one,
there's several knobs to turn (in the driver, in the OS, etc.) and
it's possible I'm not getting the correct combination. Other thing is,
I've been told by a technician that this is a PCI Express video card,
so would AGP even come into play?
