Full Version: Disabling An Agp Card

I have a new ATI 9600 AGP graphics card which works very nicely on Windows XP and is not recognised by Fedora Core 2 (kernel 2.6.8-1.541). I have read the fixes on how to get it working, but this requires the kernel source to be installed.

First of all, am I right in assuming that because I installed the kernel from the regular rpm (nor the .src.rpm version) that the kernel source is not installed?

The PC is currently far, far away from the flatrate ISDN line I usually use, so [assuming I am correct in the above] I have no desire to spend 4 hours downloading a new kernel with source, especially when line drops here are frequent. So, until I get the PC back to the usual download location and do the necessary, how do I disable the ATI 9600 AGP card and re-enable the onboard GForce4? I have looked in the BIOS as suggested to me by another linux user, but I can't see any obvious option there...have I missed it or is there a way to do this from within linux?

Many thanks...

Most distributions contian the kernel source as part of the standard set of RPMs.

Thanks DS2K3,
I actually got the 2.6.9 kernel installed from source and did all the necessary steps to get the AGP card working a couple of days ago. So I got there in the end!
