Why would it be impossible? I'm running FreeBSD 4.x with KDE and an 
nvidia Ti4200 card, although I don't know my AGP speed for sure (I 
think it's 4x). Runs fine, both with XFree86's nv driver and nvidia's 
driver, compiled from ports. I find that the nv driver is more stable
in general, but the nvidia driver is needed for playing 3D accelerated 
games, the reason I bought this card. It crashes the machine occasionally,
but I'm happy with the performance. 

Be sure to read the docs/readme that come with the nvidia driver,
there are several issues (AGP driver for instance).

Post the lines with (EE), they might give a clue why it's not working.

What is XWindow Developer??

I could send it to you (when I'm home since there is the PC with nvidia
card), but if you don't know why your setup doesn't work this won't help 
you much I'm afraid. (My guess is that the error has nothing to do with
the driver itself, therefore it gives a similar error in both cases.)
