I have a related question. Is it possible to use both the AGP card and the 
on-board video? My question only applies to XFree86 and XOrg display 
servers though. It would be a matter of explicitly stating the PCI channel 
number of both cards, and IIRC both AGP and on-board video count as PCI 
channels (no?).

I've used some computers like that but the ones I have now don't have 
on-board video.
