      You don't "switch it". It either works or it doesn't. :)

      Did you modprobe the r128 kernel module?
      Does dmesg should the agp and r128 stuff loading?

      You should see something like this in dmesg:

      Linux agpgart interface v0.99 (c) Jeff Hartmann
      agpgart: Maximum main memory to use for agp memory: 203M
      agpgart: Detected Intel 440BX chipset
      agpgart: AGP aperture is 64M @ 0xe0000000
      [drm] AGP 0.99 on Intel 440BX @ 0xe0000000 64MB
      [drm] Initialized r128 2.1.2 20001215 on minor 63

      Also, you need need need the DRM modules that are present in 2.4 (or
      you need to patch 2.2.18), the DRM stuff in 2.2.18 is version 1.0.
